Drift into this newcomer in the Star Village Arcade to discover dreamy locally designed jewellery and a range of light and summery clothing perfect for Darwin climes. Em Bella’s creators have spent years travelling Australia and have brought to Darwin clothes, art and accessories from all over the country, as well as their own range of handmade jewellery. Delicate anklets and bracelets, striking rings, and intricate earrings and necklaces are designed and crafted here – sometimes in store – with hilltribe silver, leather and turquoise, amber, tigers eye and other semi-precious stones.
Find light layers of clothes made from Byron Bay bamboo and Broome plant-dyed cloth along with silk kimonos, summer dresses and fair-trade label Buddhaware along the shop’s racks. Around the store peruse hemp woven rugs, leatherwork purses and bags, prints and paintings by local artists as well as handmade local skincare range Natural Wonders, from Howard Springs.
