Rollin Vintage

Ryan and Liesa of Rollin Vintage recently joined us at the market with their ingenius recreations of antique cutlery. Bracelets out of bent forks are not a new idea but Rollin Vintage has taken this craft to a new level of artistic delight. 



This is their story in Liesa's words: "Ryan spend a few months in the UK, at one of the markets he saw spoons that were bent all the way around into a ring. He loved the idea and told me about it when he came back. I was disappointed because after he finished telling me about it as i thought he’d whip out one of the rings for me....but he didn’t. He then promised to make me one and the first one he made turned out pretty well and he persisted."








All their jewellery is one of a kind. Even their ring sizes use recycled, out of the ordinary methods to create them. Instead of using the usual jewellery manufacturing ring sizes, they use a range of different sized gear rods from cars to size their rings. 

Their persistence has paid off and Rollin Vintage has grown from strength to strength since then. They have recently opened up a shop in Howick and added many new up-cycled vintage treasures to their list of products. 
We particularly love their 'Tablescapes' - a mini succulent garden housed inside an old book and their Tin Pendants made from gorgeous old tins with bold retro designs. 




Be sure to come and peruse their stall at the next I heart market!
