JewellerJenny has designs on the stars

She has gone from spinning discs to spinning gold.

Former 2fm DJ Jenny Huston has created her own jewellery line inspired by everyday objects.

She told the Herald she has been working on her collection, which reflects her former life as a rock aficionado.

"In terms of my inspiration, I really like the idea of elevating the normal, like taking screws and bolts or hashtags and speech bubbles and turning them into something beautiful," she said.

Jenny's jewellery line, called Edge Only, includes two collections called Rock & Roll and Geometric.

She said she would love to see her favourite artists and models wearing her creations.

"It's hard for me to look at people in the spotlight and not want to see them wearing my stuff," she said.

"I'd love to see Kate Moss or Alexa Chung or Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs wearing my designs. That would be amazing.

"Even the Queens of the Stone Age - it would be amazing to see them wearing something like my hashtag cuff links."

It's a family affair as Jenny's mother Jane Huston is a highly-regarded jewellery designer.

The idea stemmed from a frustration at not being able to find the right type of pieces to match her style and match the quality she had seen over the years through her mother's creations.

Jenny's jewellery line has something for male and female tastes, and all the pieces - earrings, rings, pendants, cuff links, bracelets, tie bars and lapel pins - are made from solid sterling silver and 14 carat and 18 carat gold.
