About Simone Walsh Handmade Jewellery
About our jewellery:
For over 20 years Simone Walsh Handmade Jewellery has delighted our lovely customers, who adore our delicate designs, along with our precious materials and attention to detail.
Every piece in the Simone Walsh jewellery range is lovingly designed and made in materials like in silver, gold and gemstones. We use metalwork techniques to create our designs: both ancient and contemporary.
Simone Walsh Handmade Jewellery is based in the Adelaide hills in Australia, but you'll find our designs worn all over the world.
We use as much recycled precious metal as we can, do our best to source ethically mined or made gemstones and generally aim to operate an eco-friendly and sustainable business.
We now partner with an ethically operated jewellery workshop outside of Australia to help produce some of our components. However, almost all of our designs are still hand finished and assembled by us, with many still being entirely made in our studio.

About Simone Walsh:
Simone is an Australian jewellery designer with a visual arts background.
For over 20 years she has been designing and making jewellery, along with art objects as time permits.
Simone's delicate and delightful jewellery is currently created in her studio in the rural Adelaide hills, where she works surrounded by pretty rolling hills full of sheep, cows and vineyards.
From happy accident to a happy handmade business
Simone's interest in making jewellery began over 20 years ago when she stumbled across a simple but unusual necklace and became intrigued by how it was made.
"I decided to try to figure out how it was constructed. After a few hours with some wire and pliers I was hooked and wanted to learn more," Simone said.
Simone began her jewellery making career in her home town of Adelaide, where she initially began teaching herself some jewellery making basics back in 1992.
Soon after she decided to undertake full time study in this field, ultimately completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts with a Jewellery & Metal major at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney.
20 years after getting started Simone’s jewellery practice is now a growing full time business. Her designs are sold to customers all over the world via the handmade jewellery shop. Our jewellery is also available through a select number of retail stores and at occasional major designers' markets around Australia.
