An antique Victorian compact hung with a gold-plated fob chain and a silver wheat chain.

The first powder compact was created during Louis XIV's reign by French perfumers in the 17th century and moved across the channel into the hands of English jewellers. It wasn't until the 1920s, with the rise of the cosmetics culture that makeup compacts were being produced en-masse. 

Flew Designs is the brand founded by local Melbourne-based jeweler and sculptor, Susie Lewis.

In a world which is consuming its finite resources at an alarming rate and is obsessed with slavishly following seasonal fast fashion trends, it is an absolute delight that Susie also sources antique and vintage ‘objet trouve’ (found object) pieces and re-imagines these individual old-world objects into beautiful and bespoke earrings, necklaces and brooches.

We carry an amazing array of bespoke and distinctive pieces created from Victorian-era vesta boxes & chatelaines, vintage chandelier drops, cigar cutters, jet mourning lockets, sterling silver fob medals, antique fob watches, wire mesh coin purses, Victorian skirt lifters and many more exquisite pieces from around the globe.

The Signet Bureau has been collaborating with Flew Designs since 2015.
