I make jewellery

Sometimes I forget that I make jewellery. Sometimes I forget that it was the reason I started this blog in the first place. Initially, this was going to be the place where I wrote about my designs, charted my progress and showed cheeky behind the scenes photos, but the more I blogged, the more it developed into something broader. In recent years, my blog has become a fashion blog, which is something I had never even considered when building it. Although I am happy for this distinction, I feel that I need to go back to my roots and start doing what I set out to do - make jewellery.

I've been so busy since starting Swell Vintage all those years ago, and for a while other things took priority - my styling work, for example. As much as I enjoy styling, I have decided to return to my first love and give Swell the proverbial kick up the ass she so needs.

To get things started, I'd like to share some new pieces with you! Check 'em out, and please excuse my very amateur photography:





So what do you think? As with all of my jewellery, each piece is made from authentic vintage and antique parts, complimented with pretty shiny things such as freshwater pearls.

All of these pieces will be up for sale on the Swell Vintage website soon, but in the meantime I'd love your feedback! Please be honest with me, I promise it'll be great appreciated.

Until next time!

Much love,

Frankie
