I'm Jenny, and I just love to work with my hands. I have always sewn and knitted and have a passion for vintage and particularly the 1940s and 1950s.
Olive & Edna was originally set up to sell some of the vintage collectibles, clothes and jewellery that I had accumulated over the years. I then started making collage jewellery from the broken brooches and odd ear rings that I would find. From there I became fascinated with all types of vintage jewellery and in particular the exquisite beaded pieces from the 1920s and 1930s. Many of these pieces had beautiful coloured cabochons surrounded by beads, and when I couldn't find the right colour for a particular piece I was creating, I searched for a way to create my own and discovered Polymer Clay.
I no longer sell the vintage items on line and now concentrate on one of a kind statement pieces of jewellery, either clay or beaded or a combination and so I hope you like what I have for sale, but keep popping back as I will be constantly adding new designs.
