Bonjour jewellery lovers, I’m Natalie Barney.
Welcome to my passion and business where I design beautiful, unique jewellery that:
• brings excitement and joy to people who wear it
• perfectly reflects a special moment, memory, emotion or achievement
• blends everyday practical with rare elegance and style.
For almost 20 years I’ve called Australia home. However, it was as a teenager in France that I first fell in love with beautiful jewellery, marvelling at gorgeous pieces sparkling in the windows of our town jewellery stores. I worked during the summer to save money for the holidays, but would always keep enough to buy a lovely ring, bracelet or earrings. Even then, wearing jewellery made me feel more confident, comfortable and elegant. Special.
After working in marketing for many years I finally followed my calling and opened Natalie Barney Jewellery, a French-inspired boutique jewellery boudoir on Sydney’s Lower North Shore. For almost 10 wonderful years I sourced gems and jewellery from around the world, sold famous brands and lesser known pieces, and devoured everything I could about the art of jewellery design. Then in 2012, I released my first collection: ‘Les Cabochons’.
This year, I bid adieu to my store to focus on my true love, designing jewellery that makes the people feel the way it has made me feel since I was that young girl.
I invite you to take a look at my online store and collections. And if you have any questions or would like to discuss a custom-made design, please contact me or arrange an appointment so we can meet in person.
