Last week we visited the fabulously French furniture and homewares store Montmartre in Sydney's Mosman and had the good fortune of happening upon the workshop of the equally fabulous Emilie Costechareyre of jewellery label Elvis Et Moi. Born and raised in France, Emilie capitalised on her skills, background and love for fashion to create a jewellery range that fuses the elusive combination of style and femininity with a touch of edginess. It's hard to believe that Emilie is self taught but not hard to understand the huge success of her label which grew organically after she launched it only five years ago. She started fine tuning her skills and making pieces that she herself wanted but couldn't find and not surprisingly others wanted them too! Emilie is as effortlessly chic as the pieces she creates for which she finds inspiration in her dreams. Perhaps it's her other passion for neuro-science and a fascination with the workings of the brain that fuels her creative outlet. Whatever it is we're fans.

You can see the Elvis Et Moi range at Monmartre (527 Military Road, Mosman)or go to www.elvisetmoi.com to find other stockists or shop online.
