Designer Spotlight: Vivien Frank

Zurich-based jewellery designer Simona of Vivien Frank Designs (VFD) creates artistic accessories that has retro elegance. The successful Swiss brand has a very comfortable and local boutique air about it, and that’s truly because the designer is behind everything she sells. She is making each piece by hand. Many of her designs are evocative of expressions from the seventies era.

If there was ever such a thing as festival-glamour this might fit the bill, but on an entirely new level of arm-candy class. Think, wooden prayer bracelets with Pavé diamonds and a world recognised favourite … the “friendship bracelet,” a contemporary upgraded version.

The VFD collection is an accessories melting pot with classic crafting materials used of wood, beads, chain, and macramé that’s kicked up several notches! Then, the pieces are paired with sterling silver, gold, or diamond elements, amongst others.

Family-Friendly and For All to Enjoy
The collection offers everything from charming statement bracelets to dainty necklaces. For the multi-accessory wearing devotee, all pieces can either be layered, stacked, or worn alone. Simona has even thought about kids accessories—it’s highly appropriate since the brand name was formed with esteem of her own two children, Vivien and Frank.

With a background as a film editor, Simona left that industry to tend to her son, Frank. But, being a creative means that inspiration is always on the horizon, shortly afterward she started producing extravagant gemstone necklaces.

Simona describes her own designs as “modern bohemian,” which is suitably fitting for the aesthetic of her work. Initially a hobby, jewellery making became a wonderful way to express herself as an artist. As a result, it has an ageless impact and global appreciation.

Presently, Vivien Frank Designs are sold worldwide. Her pieces have no particular age group in mind. There are pieces that are easy to incorporate in wardrobes—from casual outfits to city-savvy sophistication. I have my eye on a few favourites below, including my custom VFD initial name necklace. Take a look and check out my top selections from the Vivien Frank jewellery collection.

  21. I really like the bracelet with the red fringing dripping off it. I think that's a nice little touch and a bit more original than having charms that a lot of companies use.

    Liebe Madison, das sind wirklich sehr schöne Stücke! Meine Favoriten sind die Armbänder, obwohl ich nie Armbänder trage, denn sie behindern mich immer zu sehr beim Tippen :) Und Dein Rock mit dem grünen Muster gefällt mir auch sehr gut <3

    Ich wünsche Dir einen tollen Sonntag!
