Designer & Maker
Emily Quigley - Designer & Maker
Emily’s love of designing and making began at home with her family. As 6th generation on their family farm at O’Connell NSW, Emily and her brother grew up surrounded by the creativity, work ethic and business sense of their parents. Emily also enjoyed spending time with her grandmother, Pearl Burton, who was a skilled seamstress and known for her generosity with her time and expertise.
A creative pastime culminated in Peggy & Twig, a pearl jewellery label offering timeless design and thoughtful craftsmanship. Designed and made in Australia, each piece is handmade in small batches with attention to detail and carefully sourced materials.
Having spent over ten years creating her own jewellery designs while studying and school teaching, Emily began designing and making pearl jewellery in 2019 after travelling abroad.
“I was drawn to work with pearls because they are timeless and classic. They are loved by women across many generations, and can be worn for any occasion.”
Peggy & Twig was featured during the Buy From The Bush initiative that launched in 2019, and has since been featured in Vogue Australia, InStyle Australia, Country Style, Tatler, World of Interiors and Graziher magazines. In 2021, P&T was named as one of 15 Beautiful Australian Bridal Jewellery Labels by WedShed.
Peggy & Twig jewellery is made in Trangie NSW where Emily now calls home with her husband and baby boy. In early 2022, Emily relocated the business out of their home and into a purposefully renovated former stock and station agent building. Emily and her small team spend their days in the workroom out the back, while the flagship store is open Wednesday to Saturday.
