Tellusfashion have just discovered a great new jewellery designer. SuShilla launched her collection early last year. The designs focus on the quality, colour, cut and texture of semi-precious stones. One of the major collections is Tallulah collection which incorporates unusual yet beautiful rough stones such as Smithsonite and Vessonite into the jewellery designs.
Rough stones are not the only gems which feature in the SuShilla collections, the only qualities they need to possess is to be interesting and of beautiful colour and depth. The delicate Julep and Oriel collections are more intricately designed and use these cut forms of stone.
Sushilla Done grew up travelling the world with her family. As a result a lot of cultures such as India, Morocco and Istanbul have inspired her designs.
She told The Oxford Times: “I was brought up in London until the age of 11 when my father began working with the United Nations. We moved to Khartoum in the Sudan and lived there for two years, then went on to Nairobi, followed by Zambia and Malawi. I don’t think you can spend that much time travelling as a teenager without it having a huge influence on you.”
