A Golden Symphony: Crafting Timeless Moments with Magnolia Designs

In the realm of bespoke jewellery, where craftsmanship meets emotion, Magnolia Designs emerges as a beacon of artistry and love. Founded by Magnolia Howards, this jewellery atelier represents a culmination of passion, dedication, and a profound connection to nature's beauty.

Join us as we delve into the narrative of Magnolia Designs, a journey that transcends time and encapsulates precious moments in the finest of Australian materials.

Embarking on a Creative Odyssey

Magnolia Designs had its beginnings at a pivotal moment in Magnolia Howards' jewellery career. Faced with a promotion to Retail Manager at a prestigious Australian pearling business in Broome, Magnolia chose a different path. Opting for a more creative direction, she turned down the promotion to pursue a dream that had been brewing for over 15 years. Thus began the journey of Magnolia Designs, now in its fifth year, where every piece tells a story, weaving emotion into precious metal.

Crafting Colours and Stories

At Magnolia Designs, the ethos is clear – Australian made, showcasing the best of the country's offerings, and, above all, emotive. Each piece is not just jewellery; it's a bookmark in time, a legacy captured in precious metal. Magnolia works exclusively with Australian South Sea Cultured Pearls, Australian Opals, Sapphires, and Diamonds, infusing each creation with a touch of the country's natural splendour.

A Symphony of Creation

Picture a modern-day blacksmith, but working on a smaller scale and with gold – that's the essence of Magnolia's craftsmanship. Jewellery production is a physical and laborious trade, involving acids, polishing compounds, and an array of chemicals and tools. The result, however, is nothing short of magical – exclusive designs crafted by Magnolia's hands, representing a fusion of classical elegance and modern innovation.

A Full-Time Affair of Love and Legacy

For the past five years, Magnolia Designs has been Magnolia's full-time commitment. Beyond crafting bespoke jewellery, she volunteers as the Chairperson for The Broome Community Stallholders Association. Nature plays a pivotal role in her life, seeping into her designs as she immerses herself in the pristine Kimberley region. Magnolia Designs isn't just a business; it's a deliberate, considered method of legacy building.

Challenges and Triumphs in Gold

The biggest challenge? The lack of hours in the day – a common woe for small business owners. Magnolia's dedication to her craft is all-encompassing, living and breathing every aspect of her business. Support from loved ones, particularly her mother and sister, has been instrumental in overcoming challenges and expanding Magnolia Designs beyond Broome.

Goals for the Future

Magnolia envisions a future where Magnolia Designs stands shoulder to shoulder with international names in design and luxury goods. Plans to take the brand international, especially to the refined European market, reflect her ambition to share her fresh take on pearl jewellery and her passion for exquisite design.

The Charms of Perth Upmarket

Magnolia Designs finds a perfect fit at Perth Upmarket, appreciating its location at UWA's Winthrop Hall and the focus on local creation and Australian business. The market becomes a vibrant outlet for small-scale creatives like Magnolia, showcasing the diverse variety that the creative landscape has to offer

Introducing the 'Temple' Collection

'Temple,' Magnolia's inaugural collection, is a testament to her childhood in Broome, filled with the scent of Temple flowers. These blooms, often picked by her mother, symbolise love and divine moments. The collection, formed in gold, celebrates the ephemeral beauty of these flowers, capturing the essence of shared love and cherished memories.
