Ruby Olive Jewellery and Accessories
comes from the colourful imagination
of founder Skye Anderton, the primary
designer of the brand. Skye has been
involved in the Jewellery and Fashion Accessory Industry for over 14 years,
with experience in design, buying and product development. Based in
London for 8 years, she moved back to Australia in 2010 and Ruby Olive

Skye is a campaigner for international women’s rights and believes
educating and empowering women in not only Australia but across the
globe can significantly change the future for the better. She heavily supports

developing nations) and Mummy’s Wish (an Australian charity supporting
mums with cancer). In 2014 Skye won the Telstra Young Business Woman of the year (QLD) and was
