Designer Profile: Wild Heart Jewellery

Feb 27, 2013 | Designer Profile, Designers, Sponsored, TVM Burleigh Heads, Young Designers

Wild Heart Jewellery is the brain child of mother daughter duo, Samara and Julie Baunach - a talented pair with wandering gypsy souls and a mutual love of making beautiful jewellery.

Drawing their inspiration from Julie’s Bohemian wild child up bringing and Samara’s love for the native American culture, their designs are strongly influenced by their love of tribal and ethnic culture, freedom, peace, love, music, totem, talismans and mother nature.

You can find Wild Heart Jewellery at each TVM, on the first and third Sunday of each month.

Be sure to check out their gorgeous new website for the latest Lookbook, blog and of course to shop their amazing pieces online.

TVM: Tell us about how and when your label was created?
WHJ: We established Wild Heart in 2011. It all came about by us playing around and remaking old jewellery we had lying around. From there we started to source beads and we eventually started creating our first range, which was a bit of a mixture.

What pieces are included within your range?
Rings, bracelets, necklaces, cuffs, head pieces, anklets, earrings, ear cuffs and we have a home-wares range which includes dream catchers, wall hangings, lamps and agate coasters.

Where is the label designed and made?
We design and create all pieces in our home studio located here on the Gold Coast.

What inspires you?
Life! Native indian culture, tribes, travel, adventure.

Latest collection consists of?
Lots of crystals, leather, natural stones, sterling silver, feathers.

What's on your mood board?
Its quite a colorful mixture of images we have found along the way, it changes all the time but at the moment there is a little tipi love, Indian chiefs strewn in jewels, amazing shots from various fashion shoots/designers and some inspirational words thrown in there too!

What’s your creative space like?
We have just constructed a new studio which is full of beautiful jewels, trinkets and treasures we collect on our little adventures or at the markets. The walls are plastered with inspiration pictures and our favorite pieces of art. There’s a little bit of both of us. Its organized chaos and we love it!

What do you listen to while getting crafty?
It’s very chilled with a few sing-alongs. At the moment we have a little bit of the xx, The Cure, Alt-J, Bob Dylan, just to name a few.

A day in the life of you consists of?
Samara is still working full-time and Julie part-time at this stage so its all after hours designing for us!
