Jewellery Launch Day
The big day has finally arrived and the very talented Natalia Jorgensen show cased her beautiful Jewellery collection at the Stella and Dash launch party. It was a glittering affair with bubbly champagne and a gorgeous smorgasbord of treats. The garden was beautifully decorated garden with golden sunlight streaming through the trees.
Pretty flower table pieces added a soft and inviting touch. A beautiful photo wall was brought in for guests to take much loved selfies.
Natalia’s attention to detail payed off. Her Stella and Dash earrings and bangles were carefully displayed in various spots for all to see and touch.
I had a few questions for Natalia…
Q. How did you come up with the name Stella and Dash?
A. The name Stella and Dash is actually quite random! A lot of people ask if Stella and Dash are the names of my children. Not so. I’m not sure my boys would want their names associated with sparkles and pretty jewellery pieces although I didn’t ask! To come up with Stella and Dash I used a random word generator on the internet. I just entered my name, my husband’s name, our children’s names and hit “go!”. Then I sifted through words that popped up which were made from the letters in our names. Stella and Dash just seemed to go together and voila, my business name was established!
Q. How are your pieces made and where do you get your inspiration from?
A. All of my items are handmade with pieces sourced from Australian suppliers. A lot of my inspiration comes from artwork created by my Mother, Lyndal Jorgensen, who started painting about 5 years ago. We started collaborating mid 2018 and came up with a line of earrings using images from her artwork. We hope to come up with more styles made from her artwork in the future.
Q. What was life before Stella and Dash?
A. Previously I ran a small business making baby bibs and teething accessories. Once my children were out of that stage of life I lost a little of the passion for it. I found that I didn’t have the extra time to focus on a business that wasn’t exciting to me anymore. It has been almost 3 years since I closed down the baby business. In February 2018 I decided to start hand making my own earrings. It was a hobby at first but has evolved over the past 6 months into a full time business that I can run from home.
