Frances says

I'm Fran Winston from Dublin and I'm a storyteller. More precisely I act, write, produce, direct, research and (if I have to) edit. I've been writing for papers and magazines for two decades and acting almost as long. I'm a great believer in healthy body, healthy mind and enjoy regular runs and I really try to commit to yoga (I know I need to do it to maintain my flexibility and make me a more physical actor but since it's usually 5/6am when I'm exercising its haarrrdddd). I love discovering healthy ways to do sinful dishes - I found a great healthy banana muffin recipe recently that has eased sooooo much guilt! In general I try to be healthy but not to a boring extent - I love my glass of wine or three as much as the next girl. I love to travel and also am possibly the biggest geek you will ever meet (although plenty of my fellow geeks would argue otherwise).

One of my personal career highlights was getting to shoot a scene with the late, great Sir Christopher Lee a few years ago. More recently I researched, wrote, produced, directed and appeared in a pilot I shot at the end of 2015 which fingers crossed will go further. I also recently played the estranged wife of a man who smuggled in an immigrant in a new film. I'm developing a multi platform media project and about to launch a new series of mini documentaries on YouTube and, yeah, it is exhausting sometimes working hard on things you are passionate about, trying to make a living and trying to have a life. But it's also very rewarding.

I couldn't do half what I do without the support of my friends and specifically my girlfriends. I'm a huge believer in girl power - as are Trinkets Jewellery - and I really feel we are all gorgeous and we should support each other.
I'm proud to be a part of this campaign because it's not just about "real women" (which is a very grey advertising area). It's about all women! And we all rock!
