Secrets of our
Design Curator

Tanja Kovacevic

Founder

Petite Grand

Tanja has always had a passion for jewellery. It was during her time as accessory buyer at Zimmermann that she had the opportunity to really explore and define her personal style, which overall is fairly understated.

In 2010 after 15 years of working in the fashion industry she decided to take some time out and follow her dream of jewellery design. Petite Grand was launched later that year.

For design inspiration Tanja always takes in what her friend's are wearing. Her designs are understated and easily transcend from All Day to Every Night. Geometric shapes with a mix of precious metals and cord are the base of her must have collections.

Tanja works in Elizabeth Bay, Sydney and says "I love the outdoors and if I could do one thing forever, I would travel".

Favourite Things
Interiors

I have a great sunroom I work from which overlooks Elizabeth Bay. The room is filled with succulents and treasures I’ve found from my travels.

I was just in Melbourne and was so impressed by the design and interiors stores around Fitzroy and Brunswick. So much local talent!

In general, I’m drawn to anything with an eclectic Moroccan feel and really enjoy a good vintage store.

Favourite Things
Style

Bassike is my go to brand. Their design aesthetic suits my lifestyle perfectly. 

Favourite Things
Travel

I have friends in Vietnam and escape there when I can. I love the raw surroundings. I’ve also lived in London - the fashion, art and culture of that city always inspires me.
