Magdalena Frackowiak has been in the fashion industry for more than 15 years, a decade of which she spent as a Victoria's Secret angel. When we meet she reveals that architecture and design have always been her real passions. So much so, they’ve led to her launching a fine-jewellery line – consisting of 26 pieces, including rings, bracelets, brooches, earrings and necklaces.
Each item is handcrafted in her native Poland by local artisans, who use the centuries-old process of lost-wax casting. What makes the range so special is its one-of-a-kind colour, which was created by the model herself when she experimented with the percentages of gold, copper and silver used in the mixture. Her collection ranges in price from €1000 to €10,000 and is available exclusively at https://magdalenafrackowiak.com
