Specializing in handmade items with only the finest materials, Ruby Louise is a jewellery design business located in inner Eastern Melbourne. Her items are fun, quirky, girlie designs that are inspired by vintage fashion and nature. At Ruby Louise you will find lots of cute pieces that can be mixed and matched, handmade by me, with love. 

Run Wild Horses designs feature vintage, vintage reproduction and modern materials blending together to create a wonderfully unique “modern vintage” look which appeals to young and old alike.
Mostly working in brass stampings, vintage cameos, metal embellishments and beads sourced from all over the globe, resurfacing the materials to create interesting finishes. She has also created a number of different metal finishing and colour techniques, giving further originally to uniqueness to her work.
Sharee draws her inspirations from the materials themselves, preferring not to restrict the label to any one material, colour or theme, instead allowing the designs to develop and come together from the gathering of materials. Having this freedom to work with different mediums and themes allows the label to remain unique. It also keeps her interested in the work and inspired to create new different collections.
