Our journey began after receiving Christmas gifts made by Franky from her brand Frankie & I. Franky is based in Marske, North Yorkshire after being based in Sydney and Stockholm as a designer and previously running her own fashion brand. Franky has a degree in Fashion design and textiles and has experience working within the industry for prestigious brands all around the world. Using a local small business to produce our collection was incredibly important to us.
We approached Franky with our plans to create something truly unique to the market. After researching products to keep your jewellery safe whilst keeping style at the forefront of our minds we struggled to find just what we were looking for. We have been working behind the scenes for many months, deciding on fabrics, colours, accessories and trimmings. Working through numerous samples to ensure we produce a product fit for purpose whilst maintaining sumptuous luxury.
Each Clutch and Pocket is handmade locally in Marske by Franky. We have chosen premium cotton velvets in three colours for our first collection, named Blush Pink, Frankly Grey and Midnight Blue. Each product fastens securely with gloss polished zippers, our silver nickel zips are smooth to touch and corrosion resistant. For ease and glamour we have added our silver leather tassels.
The Clutch is for the magpie and has been designed to hold and treasure your beautiful Renné collection. By adding loops and the press stud feature it allows you to hang your chains, meaning no more tangled necklaces. This is important to keep your chains in top condition. The first shallow pocket includes three more smaller compartments for small studs such as our Mini Hoops and Polo Studs, keeping your earrings protected will avoid tarnishing. Use the ring holder to store your beloved jewels neatly and clearly whilst protecting them from scratching. The large base pocket we imagine to be used for your bracelets and bangles. We aimed to design a useful, practical yet luxurious product to protect your precious pieces of jewellery.
Our second design named the Pocket is a convenient little purse used to store your smaller items of jewellery. We often found we had no where to pop our bangles and necklaces when travelling and wanted a safe place to put them, our Pocket is the solution. It’s handy size is manageable for handbags and convenient enough to carry with you each day.
We hope you love them as much as we do, we know your jewellery will!
