Brand: Cleopatra's Bling
Designer, Olivia was born a wanderer. From childhood, surrounded by trinkets, crystals and her treasure chest. Cleopatra’s Bling was born from an adoration of travel, the etherial, and the symbolic. A fusion of eastern allure and western style. Dreamed up in Paris, she moved to Turkey to learn the art of adornment in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Olivia now resides between Istanbul, Paris and Melbourne. She creates jewellery with emotional and historical relevance, dipping into the collective memory, all while respecting ancient jewellery-making traditions.
The southern Italian city of Naples has long held the alternative title urbs sanguinam or City of Blood, for the many esoteric and mystic happening that occurred with that life-giving liquid within its confines. Every year the residents hold a magnificent procession in honour of one such miracle, in which the Neapolitan Saint Gennaro, whose devotion to the Church caused him to perform miracles with blood. At his feast, the residents carry his relics, crosses, and treasures through the narrow city streets, before enjoying a communal feast.

Care: As Olivia and her team hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make the designs one-of-a-kind.
Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery. Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality.
