Brisbane jewellery and accessory designer, Chelsea de Luca, has just launched a preview of her yet-to-be released new collection – Una Bella Vita.
This is the label’s first collection featuring coloured stones, while still remaining true to the distinct French art deco, yet modern style that has helped Chelsea de Luca establish a cult following. Many pieces have be spotted on celebs such as Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle MacPherson, Roisin Murphy, Kate Miller-Heidke and Dannii & Kylie Minogue, to name a few.
