Above one of Melbourne’s iconic lanes is the boutique and design studio of Tallulah Designer Jewellery. For the past 25 years, owner Rebecca Sampson has been creating beautiful jewellery for discerning clients across Australia. I first met Rebecca while on a gemmology tour of the Top End in June 2019. I am excited to now be sitting in her design studio, a clutter of tools, materials and drawings around us. Drifting up through windows open to catch an afternoon breeze, are fragments of conversations from the coffee shops in the alley below.
How people step into their respective occupations has always fascinated me. Rebecca’s journey is an interesting story.
Rebecca Sampson established Tallulah in 2006, with the sole aim of bringing romance back to the jewellery industry. A niche business, Rebecca is motivated more by sophisticated aesthetics rather than commercial purpose.
Tallulah provides a truly unique jewellery experience. Clients connect personally with Rebecca, the artisan directly responsible for the design and production of the desired piece of jewellery, working from the bench in Tallulah's Melbourne studio. By being involved throughout the entire process, clients feel a deep sense of connection to the final product. Clients become absorbed in the creative atmosphere at Tallulah, where imagination is nurtured and flourishes.
Starting with design, clients choose from an array of stones that speaks to them and reflects their individuality. Clients also have the opportunity to learn about the stones and what makes each unique.
After choosing the right stones and settling on a design, Rebecca keeps her clients updated to the progress of the piece. As the piece starts to take shape, clients are encouraged to visit the studio and view the progress. Allowing clients to remain deeply connected to the jewellery throughout this transformative stage. It also ensures that everyone is happy with the direction of the piece. Collaboration between client and jeweller is an invigorating experience for both.
Tallulah has firmly established itself in fine jewellery design. Rebecca has a following of passionate clientele, who are always thrilled to reveal that it’s a “Becca piece”. Success in providing an exceptional product allows Rebecca to invest in rare gems and travel, inspiring her creativity and cultivating a group of international clientele
Rebecca has had the privilege to work on a number of unique projects, including two Melbourne Spring Fashion Week exhibitions, and has had received multiple commissions from international feature films. In 2017 Rebecca received the City Of Melbourne "Mayors Award" for her commitment in running a small business within the city of Melbourne.
Rebecca is a certified gemmologist, diamond grader and valuer. She also mentors other gemmologists.
Tallulah thrives on the ability to share the romance of beautiful gems and designs.
