Milica Tempest started experimenting with jewellery making in 2003. Since then she has taken night classes and studied different jewellery-making techniques, what she didn’t learn in the classroom she taught herself. She is always exploring different design techniques and has learned to translate conceptual designs in timeless and unique jewellery pieces.

She launched Black Dahlia Jewellery in 2011. Her training in fashion design has helped grow her love for accessories into a thriving business. Inspired by the inherent beauty of her raw materials, she creates modern, unique pieces using natural crystals mounted with either a hand-cut brass bale or an authentic bullet casing. All her pieces are hand-crafted out of her Toronto home-studio.
