Meet the maker Eilidh Strang


I live in the New Town of Edinburgh, in amongst scores of Charity Shops where fabulous old people give away all their vintage things and I get a lot of my ideas and stock for Silk Purse, Sow’s Ear.

I love the idea of my jewellery being bunged on. I love the idea of a massive pearl cocktail ring with jeans and an old jumper. I love the idea of a lion brooch worn with a vintage flowery tea dress.

Because I use genuine antique materials for my vintage jewellery, many of my pieces are one-offs or limited runs. I list new items every day and am always sourcing new materials and having bright ideas. The best way to stay in touch is Facebook. Search and I'm there.
