The Brand Edit : DEUX EARRINGS

Deux by name, Deux by nature. Two talented young sisters are behind emerging jewellery brand, Deux Earrings

23 year old Talia Turter and 18 year old Alanis Turtur started the business 18 months ago. Since then, it's gone from strength to strength. The Adelaide girls were big fans of large statement earrings, but wanted to put their own twist on current designs. They started with their incredibly light-weight, signature acrylic earrings, resembling retro styles of the 80s.

"Acrylic is a material we like to work with because you can pretty much make any design you want from it", Talia explains. "It's also light-weight, so it won't weigh down your ears and it's very sturdy", she says.

Now the sisters are branching out, incorporating silk & cotton tasselssequins, pom poms and different metals into their designs.

Last year, within less than 6 months of launching, Deux Earrings was asked to feature in the Adelaide Fashion Festival, hitting the runway for Acler & Couture+Love+Madness.

"From the beginning we have always tried to cater for as many people as we can by offering lots of different styles," Alanis explains. "The Adelaide Fashion Festival last year was a chance to showcase our designs on a high-end fashion level", she says.

The young ladies are nothing if not motivated. Talia is a full-time accountant, studying to become a chartered account, while Alanis is studying a Bachelor of Business. It puts them in the perfect position to organise the brand's logistics.

Their biggest clientele is online, and they're stocked in some boutiques. They mostly sell across Australia, but have recently had orders from New Zealand and as far away as Puerto Rico. "We are really happy with the response we are getting at the moment, especially in this festive season", Alanis says.

The ladies have been kind enough to give my followers 15% off until Christmas, when you spend $50 on all earrings except the winter bloom range. Use my code REPORTER15 at the check-out.
