Joanna Swan's range of vintage style adornments are beautifully romantic and colourful. She has been making unique, necklaces and earrings for 25 years as a passionate side job to her career as a singer and songwriter and her vibrant, eye-catching creations have gained a lot of local fans. In the midst of her 8th album, Joanna is very busy with music this year, so if you want to buy some of her new designs (starting from £4 and upwards) Christmas at the Orangery is the place!
"I use all sorts of beads - I am not a snob, I like to mix all mediums, ranging from hand made kiln wound glass, to gemstones, pearls, plastic, wood and old vintage bits and bobs I have been storing in my nest. I get such a thrill seeing people out and about in my jewellery that I have to stop myself from running up to them and saying - "Hey I made that! ... give it back" ... (the last bit's a joke!)
We get a double whammy with Joanna as she and Nick (voice and guitar) are also going to perform a set of jazzy Christmas songs around 11am in the cafe. So come along and pick a table by the Christmas tree, choose your cake and relax and her soulful voice get you in the festive mood. If you like what you hear you will also be able to buy the new Jo Swan and The Hounds of Lounge covers CD.
