Deeley launching 'vintage-inspired' jewellery collection

Cat Deeley's new jewellery collection has been inspired by vintage pieces.

The 'So You Think You Can Dance' host is launching an accessories line with home shopping channel QVC later this month and wanted her pieces to have a classic feel to them, with a modern twist.

Speaking of her decision to become a jewellery designer, Cat said: "People would always ask, 'Where'd you get that?' when I wore things. Most people don't have the time or inclination to go to vintage stores and look through things. Lots of people find it scary - it's time-consuming and it's nice that I do the leg work for them and make it all work."

The British beauty says her job allows her to find stunning vintage pieces because she gets to travel all across the US.

She said: "I'm quite good at finding these little hidden treasures. When I'm going off and travelling around the country on the audition tour, I go to all these vintage shops - anywhere from Los Angele to New York to Memphis to Nashville to wherever. And I find all these amazing vintage designs."

If her accessories line is a success, Cat may consider creating her own clothing range.

She said: "Perhaps I might do one. But it would be along a similar vibe -vintage-inspired. Something that's very useful and modern and very fresh. I don't want women to turn around and think vintage isn't for me, that it's old and boring."
