It is rare in life to find true and constant supporters. Even rarer, in my experience, to find mutual admiration and shared respect. Throughout the years, as my career has unfolded, I have indulged in endless support from two wonderful women. Women who I am humbled to call friends and who have accomplished so much, I often feel inadequate in their presence. Let me introduce sisters…
Elizabeth and Shentel Lee.
Originally from Sydney (we met at school), these girls have relentlessly pursued their passions and followed their hearts with a kind of Charlotte Olympia meets Karl Lagerfeld creative vision that continues to inspire all they come across. Now living in Malaysia, between Kuala Lumpur and Kuching, they are the definition of ‘women who have and do it all.’ They create it all. They run multiple businesses, own the social calendar and constantly appear on magazine covers, all whilst ensuring their families are fed, read to and put to bed with bedtime stories. Needless to say, they do all of this on minimum sleep and wearing the latest runway pieces… don’t worry, I am baffled too.
How did we end up here? Well, we’d always dreamt about working together and this year, ideas finally began to fall into place and here we are, excitedly sharing our recent campaign shoot and launching our collaborative project, Bowerhaus x Hermione Olivia.
The collection has no two pearls that are alike and in Shentel’s words;
“Never one to conform, Hermione Olivia is a classic rebel, and we have created a rebel baroque pearl that is encrusted with metallic black crystals as an owe to her style and personality.”
The collaborative collection is available now, a monochromatic collection of jewellery inspired by our shared love of travel and timeless pieces. I am so thrilled to invite you into this collaborative project. xHermione.

With Love from Hermione, Shentel and Elizabeth. xx
