.......the romance continues
Are you a romantic at heart who adores antique and vintage jewellery that makes a statement?
Are you someone that doesn't worry about trends, and love to mix both vintage and new?
Then romance&ruin is for you, a one of a kind woman.....a woman that follows her heart when it comes to fashion and prefers to stand out in a crowd. My stunning statement pieces offer an eclectic edge that is inspired by vintage and antique glamour of a past era.
My clients love sharing the responses they get when they wear their romance&ruin pieces--people admiring it and asking where they purchased it....I'm always thrilled to hear these stories and love seeing first hand how much they're enjoying their romance&ruin creations.
.......dream their stories and add yours
I adore vintage and antique jewellery.....it's so enchanting, and I'm fascinated by the stunning designs. My passion is taking these long forgotten pieces and recreating gorgeous, elegant designs that you'll fall in love with. Their beauty inspires me and each piece I buy becomes a muse to me during my design process. I want to create and share my work with women who will treasure their pieces....pieces that come with a history of their own.
As a kid you'd find me surrounded by crayons, pencils, paint, scissors, glue, needles and thread. Always busy making my own calendars, birthday cards, story books, shoebox dollhouses and doll clothes. And as I grew up so did my creative outlets--sketching, painting, sewing, restoring furniture, decorating and gardening. In 2012 I left a full time career to start romance&ruin; a lifelong dream. A self-taught designer, I was immediately hooked after purchasing my first vintage art deco dress clip at a local antique shop. I wanted to turn it into something that I could wear anytime so I started working on my first design and haven't stopped since.
