Vendetta Designs is me: Jacqueline Kinred, a Sydney based alternative metal smith and designer. I love music, fire twirling, drums, jewellery and dancing. I’m excited by the fact I’ve turned a hobby into a business and love what I do. I try to bring my passionate and unique sense of style to my range and I hope my lifetime love and affection for jewellery, accessories and adornment is obvious in this striking and bold range of mens and womens jewellery.
Much of my range is inspired by and reflects a penchant for gothic glamour, twisted princess and rock and roll sass but also includes classic and timeless designs for those who prefer subtle intrigue
I like to think that my metalwork is feisty and cutting edge but still feminine, coy and fun. My skull and skeleton jewellery has a playful edge as well as a macabre one and I love bringing this juxtaposition into my designs. I hope that people take my jewellery seriously but notice that my tongue’s firmly planted in my cheek! I love it when my jewellery engages the wearer and the observer and starts a conversation.
Most of my collection is made using metal smithing techniques, handmade, shaped and finished but I sprinkle throughout the range rare, one-off vintage designs that incorporate bits and pieces I reappropriate, alter or smith, collected from garage sales, auctions and second hand shops.
I started making jewellery at kindergarten out of coloured macaroni and have been making, remaking and de and re-constructing my own jewellery, accessories and outfits ever since! I’ve been gathering an electic tool collection ever since and am forever expanding my tool and skill base by learning new techniques wherever possible.
I adore the fact that everyone has treasured jewellery items that they just love , regardless of the material, whether expensive or inexpensive, that we imbibe them with memories, love and confidence and make them precious.
I like to work with all varieties of metal, glass, perspex, acrylic, resin and wood to incorporate vibrant colour and depth into my work.
No two pieces are ever exactly alike and wherever possible recycled materials are used and/or reappropriated to save them from landfill or waste. This means that many of the designs include vintage elements, findings and focal pieces to help reduce Vendetta Designs carbon footprint. Sterling silver used is 100% recycled and recyclable.
Jewellery can be made in sterling silver, 14ct gold-filled, 9ct gold or gold tone as desired and I’m more than happy to design and create a custom made and distinct piece, hand made, designed, shaped and finished, just for you.
Vendetta Designs welcomes wholesale enquires so if you'd like to stock my designs in your store, please contact me for wholesale pricing.
Have fun and I hope you know how much you ROCK!
