|I’m Helen Swan of Helen Swan Designer Jewellery. I started my business in Glasgow, Scotland in 2009, designing elegant, contemporary jewellery in combinations of Silver, Gold and Anodised Aluminium. In my most recent collection I have introduced some rubber – just to spice it up a little.I have a variety of styles to match many outfits and occasions, especially my interchangeable range which can change colour and style with the minimum of effort and cost. I also design affordable bespoke jewellery and my Contemporary Kilt pins are a perfect gift for every occasion.Have you heard of my ‘Sentimental Jewellery’? I can transform your drawer of old, inherited, unwanted jewellery into pieces you will love and wear, retaining those special sentimental memories while substantially increasing its value.I design pieces that are unusual yet wearable and I explore methods of attaching them to your body that are unconventional but appealing. The engineering of my work often inspires the design and everything is lovingly made with attention to detail and finish a priority.My fashion tip this season is Colour Blocking. Do it in style by adding a colourful piece of statement jewellery. It will be easier to wear, can be changed more often with less expense and can also liven up dark outfits on cold dark days.|
