Nathalie grew up in a multi-cultural environment and after spending her childhood living in several different continents she settled in London where she studied Fashion Design at the prestigious Central Saint Martin's School of Art. Her varied experience working in the fashion industry as well as her extensive travels across the globe always inspire her to create bespoke jewellery pieces that fill her and her clients with a sense of happiness. Amadeus is Nathalie's new love, a hand-made, eclectic and ethical inspired collection.

 As a brand, Amadeus takes great care to ensure that all pieces are produced with a focus on sustainability and ethical practice. Hand producing all pieces in their London studio gives them complete control over the entire process, from sourcing and production to setting and finishing.

Fighting climate change can seem out of reach for most but thanks to their partner Tree-Nation they are able to offer all clients worldwide CO2 neutral delivery. For each order you place, they will plant a tree in their company forests located in Madagascar and Tanzania to compensate  CO2 emissions.
