We have jewellery sellers to satisfy all tastes at next Sunday's Vintage Fashion & Textile Fair. For those gals who aren't into really glitzy vintage costume jewels we have a fabulous selection of jewellery designers who have kitsch and funky creations with a fun and retro feel.

Amanda at Boopy Doodle creates cute and quirky jewellery pieces which all come gift wrapped so are ideal as gifts for girlfriends, teenage daughters or even mum's. Choose from bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces - all in gorgeously retro colours and designs. My favourite has to be this Liquorice Allsort bracelet, which looks good enough to eat!

Rachael at RJL Designs will be returning with her fabulous 'Measure Up' range of fashion jewellery made from recycled fabric, cloth, twisted tape measures and buttons. Her corsages and headbands were very popular when she last appeared at FATC in May of this year, and we all loved how she had taken mundane discarded textiles and transformed them into unique and beautiful fashion accessories.

Jennifer of Jennifer Robinson Jewellery has a wonderful and diverse range of unique designs which incorporate the use of all manner of recycled objects - from silver coins, charms, thimbles and even spoons to old stamps and photographs. Proving very popular are her new range of necklaces made from old watch parts. Each and every piece is a one-off so you know that you are unique when you are wearing jewellery from Jennifer.

Roisin of Beadylicious crafts all manner of pretty jewellery items and accessories from fabric, beads and other vintage bits and pieces. We love her corsages and headbands and all the other strings to her bow which include murals and wedding invitations! She is one talented girl!

One of the jewellery ranges from the gifted Norma at Norma Jean Vintage is her collection of handcrafted funky necklaces which incorporate recycled beads, chains and vintage charms, all from old broken jewellery. No two pieces are the same, and there is something to suit everyone, whether your taste is pearls and diamantes or chunky silver and crosses.

We know that a lot of little girls (and indeed big girls) are going to be very excited by the new range of necklaces from Samantha at The Fol-de-rol Dolls. Using recycled beads and Disney charms they are perfect for all us princesses. The problem is choosing which one I like best so I think I might have to buy them all!

The lovely Lois from Little Lo Lo's House will be bringing along a selection of her quirky jewellery designs and accessories made from old and used materials, for when you want something that little bit different like this fabulous necklace.


And Sharon Hay of Innocent Chaos will be returning with her ever-popular range of vintage-inspired jewellery, reminiscent of the innocence and chaos of childhood. Choose from necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, corsages, and luxurious designs which include her unique bridal bouquets fashioned from vintage brooches.

The Frock Around The Clock Vintage Fashion & Textile Fair takes place on Sunday 26th September at the Holiday Inn, Ormeau Avenue, Belfast from 11am to 4.30pm. 45 sellers of vintage clothing, accessories, jewellery and homewares. Music by the Jenny Kallen Jazz Band and a special guest appearance by The Whistle Bait Babies. Admission costs £5 for adults and £3 for seniors and students.
