About

Swan was born on a cold afternoon in Notting Hill 2011. Walking past a store on Westbourne Grove, I became transfixed by a taxidermy swan in the window. In a strange version of ‘how much is that doggy in the window?’ that day I became the adoptive mother of a 100 year old swan, who I fondly call Doug.

 

I have worked across jewellery and fashion for 15 years, in Australia and abroad. I started my career in the Decorative Arts and Design department at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, received an education in style with Collette Dinnigan; worked in Fine Jewellery for many years at Sotheby’s and as the Designer/Marketing Coordinator at Jan Logan. In 2009 London was calling, and in my three years there I gained experience with many of the retail greats – Chanel, Hermès, Selfridges, Liberty and Annina Vogel. In 2012 I relocated to New York, working as the US Brand Manager for Annina Vogel, consulting primarily with Bergdorf Goodman. In 2014 it was time to come home. Family and the landscape and lifestyle of Australia were beckoning me back. In late 2014, I accepted the position of Marketing & Communications Manager for Musson Jewellers. Being a Select Atelier for Argyle Pink Diamonds and an award-winning designer using the finest gems available mean my current day job is pretty exciting!

 

I love jewellery quite simply, because we treasure it. We are constantly changing our clothes but with jewellery we wear it for years; it travels with us on our adventures, it represents our most significant moments. I wanted to design jewellery that was accessible, wearable and unique.

 

I hope you enjoy Swan!
