Savvy & Sassy is the Brand name that started my journey on the way to becoming a Contemporary Jeweller.
Hi I’m Helene Campbell owner and chief visionary officer of Tall Trees Studio and Savvy & Sassy.
I started a bit later than most, as l originally started a more corporate career, but my first delight has always been jewellery, something both Grandmothers fostered in me from an early age.
Whilst travelling for work and leisure, I was fortunate to collect a number of pieces of jewellery myself, and visit Museums around the word with the most amazing collections of Antique, Vintage, Modern and Contemporary Jewellery. My love for jewellery continues to grow, it just took me a while to gain the right skills and set up a work shop.
With Savvy & Sassy it’s a bit of Jekyll and Hyde thing, just more jewellery based on style, where Savvy & Sassy is a tad more traditional, dare I say corporate office based in styling. If you haven’t worked it out, Savvy & Sassy comes out the Tall Trees Contemporary Design Studio located in the lush, picturesque, sub-tropical rain forest’s of Mt Dandenong, located in the Dandenong Ranges, East of Melbourne, Australia.
Inspiration for Savvy & Sassy tends to be more drawn from main stream context and forums, overall the underlying design context continues to be that each piece created will be given and worn to show Love.
I have several professional affiliations:
• Practising Affiliate – Gold and Silversmith Guild of Australia
• Accredited Member – Craft Victoria
• Overseas Affiliate – Guild of Glass Engravers UK
And I studied at Melbourne Polytechnic for the Advanced Diploma of Jewellery Manufacture & Design.
Private commission work is welcome
From childhood I was drawn to Jewellery. My Grandmothers both encouraged this Love of Jewellery. I collected Jewellery and now……. I make Jewellery to show the world that you are Loved
