About the designer

Luda HunterLuda Hunter

A life long fascination collecting tribal and ancient adornment led  me to jewelry design. Leaving behind a successful graphic design business, the last several years have been devoted to creating  unique handcrafted jewelry and sourcing rare, exquisite beads and accessories throughout Asia and faraway places for my retail gallery GEMILA in Mona Vale.

I continually aspire to combine history, style and soul in each piece, using old, antique and rare beads, stones, pendants and artifacts from different cultures and religions into contemporary wearable art pieces.

My love of Bali and the humbling spiritual nature of the Balinese enables me to give something back to these beautiful people and their villages by working closely with several silversmiths in designing my own pendants and silver findings.

A lot of the stones have stories. Should you require any history or details on a piece, please email me and I will be happy to share any background with you.

It is my pleasure to offer you jewelry that is eclectic and out-of-the-ordinary. I’m sure you’ll find a piece that calls to you …enjoy wearing it as much as I have in its creation.
