Paralympic swimmer Sophie Pascoe has ditched togs for jewellery in her latest photo shoot for a new sponsor.

Christchurch-based jewellery retailer Silvermoon today announced a four-year sponsorship deal with Pascoe, "who loves fashion and jewellery almost as much as she loves swimming", the company said.

Pascoe, a Cantabrian, is a world record holder and winner of 10 Paralympic medals between 2008 and 2012.

Silvermoon founder Simon Thwaites said the brand would support the swimmer's efforts at this year's events and towards the 2016 Paralympic Games.

"What people might not be aware of is Sophie also has a love for fashion and jewellery," Thwaites said.

Pascoe has talked of one day having her own line of clothing, he said.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with Silvermoon as I love fashion and accessorising, almost as much as I love swimming," she said.

"The past few years have been an amazing journey for me – it's great to be able to work in areas outside of sport that I also have a passion for."
