Are you a romantic at heart and looking for jewellery and accessories that capture your imagination and unique style?
Do you love to mix both vintage and new regardless of what may be trending?
Are you struggling to find pieces that tug at your heart, express your personality and tell the world your story?
If you're like me, you know exactly what you like--it needs to make a statement and evoke our emotions to become part of our treasured collections.
ROMANCE&RUIN offers a stunning collection of one of a kind designer jewellery created with antique and vintage components that are reworked into my new designs...beautifully romantic and feminine designs with a timeless elegance and the glamour of a bygone era. I'd love to help you create a meaningful collection of jewellery and accessories that you've dreamed of and will cherish for many years to come.
Each of my jewellery pieces are created from a collection of vintage lovelies, repurposed into new classics...pieces honouring both the passage of time--and timelessness. My collection of antique, estate and vintage components range in eras from Victorian to Art Deco, also spanning the 30's to the 80's. Along with antique and vintage jewellery embellishments, many of the vintage inspired accessories are finished with antique and vintage buttons, beadwork, lace, floral millinery pieces and fabric remnants. My components are sourced from around the world and collecting them is as a great source of creative inspiration.
Complete care is taken to make sure that you receive a quality and unique item. It is my goal to provide you with accurate information about my pieces and do my best to ensure you are completely satisfied with your purchase.
When I'm not in my studio, you'll find me working in the gardens with my little Yorkie, Piper; building Lego with my grandson (our favourite thing to do when he comes to stay), looking for another great British TV series, planning family get togethers, painting furniture, making pillows, designing wreaths, or decorating the house for the next holiday. As long as I can remember I've been creating and can't imagine life without doing what I love.
With 10 years of experience as a jewellery and accessory designer, my creativity and curiosity are what drive me to continue developing new collections, always challenging myself to experiment and push beyond anything I've created before.
From brides planning their big day, to the thrill of having my work featured in theater and national ballet productions, to celebrations marking life's wonderful milestones; my work has found its way to clients around the world. I'm a proud Canadian designer and as close as your tablet or phone...so grab that cup of tea, find a cozy chair and enjoy!
Take care-Marian xo
