Handmade by Frances Kirk
Born from a dream to create an environmentally-aware independent jewellery brand that promote slow fashion and conscious buying, Frances Kirk doesn't pretend to make perfect, mass-produced jewellery. Instead, Annie Niekirk, the brand's founder, embraces the handcrafted charm of each lovingly-made jewellery design she personally brings to life in her South London studio.
"Nothing here is made with trends in mind, but with creative and versatile forms that can be worn for decades without going out of style," says Annie. "I really believe jewellery is something to be treasured; Frances Kirk was started to make modern heirlooms."
Frances Kirk jewellery designs are for lovers of craft, tracers of history, and believers in beauty over perfection. Annie founded Frances Kirk in 2020 after completing a BA in Fine Art and an MA in History of Art and her designs are influenced by modernist history.
Annie is sensitive to the jewellery industry's wasteful and sometimes harmful impact on the Earth. She seeks to be a change-maker and consciously challenges unsustainable practices at every stage of the jewellery production process. All of the silver and gold used in Frances Kirk's jewellery designs are recycled, all stones are lab-grown or antique, and all packaging (from boxes to filling and everything between) is 100% recycled or sustainably sourced and 100% recyclable or biodegradable from your home.
