Wyvine is the founder and designer behind SheNoblesse, launched in December 2014.
Originally from Belgium, Wyvine moved to Australia with her partner in 2012.
Once in Sydney, Wyvine considered being a wedding planner. But while she developed a passion for crafting she couldn’t chose between planning or creating. She then decided to combine the two, and Shenoblesse was born! A new brand offering intricately designed jewelry and bridal accessories.
SheNoblesse is the combination of English and French meanings; « She » meaning « Feminine » and « Noblesse » meaning « Nobility ».
Wyvine is a princess at heart, loves everything vintage and finds her inspiration in old romantic costume, historic personalities and dramatic genres. She always focuses on quality and constantly explores new methods and styles to deliver unique, handcrafted products.
At Shenoblesse, each piece is created from a sketch or Wyvine’s creative imagination. With a blend of exceptional, self-taught techniques and the finest components, such as crystals, freshwater pearls, fine laces and tulles, each piece takes its own identity and develops its own character as it is created.
Today Wyvine works with brides from all over the world. Her biggest markets are the US and Australia, but she has customers in over 20 countries. She always gets excited when a new country adds to the list!

Tim Christinat is a Sydney based designer and artist working all over the nation on many creative initiatives!
He began drawing at a very young age, and began painting in 2011 completing one of his all time favourite pieces ‘Marcel’ (pictured) a tribute to his Grandfather which now graces the wall of his living room.
Tim likes to experiment with acrylic paint and other mediums, using colourful palettes and bold strokes, he paints out of inspiration and his art always gives a positive feel. In the last couple of years he has explored live paintings; working with an audience, time frames and wet paint has been a great challenge but has pushed the limits of his art.
Tim is a passionate artist, loves being creative, taking risks and throwing paint on the canvas letting it drip, a nice contrast to creating and marrying perfect type and vectors behind his computer!
Business coach & author Stewart Bell has been coaching professional services firms for over 15 years, and founded specialist consulting firm Audere in 2014. A local St Peters resident, he can often be found wandering around the Art Room lamenting the hardship of his 50m commute to work.
Whilst seemingly an odd one out in an artistic community, Stewart has a real passion for helping those with a love of and talent for what what they do to create stable and sustainable businesses that enable them to reap the benefits of their endeavours. Building a business may not be classically a work of art, but it’s most certainly an act of creation.
