Products and Services
We specialise in a bespoke hair accessories and jewellery making service which allows you to wear unique pieces tailored to the look of your wedding, their budget and style. We will source and put together vintage or non vintage items, consulting you at every stage of design and making. We happily incorporate cherished family items in the design where desired. We know that the smallest detail is so important to you and will go the extra mile to ensure we create something perfect for you. As part of the bespoke service we can make items for bridesmaids and flower girls. We take inspiration from your hair accessory and try to tie the bridesmaid pieces into the overall look either by shape, theme or type of stones / crystals. We also have a range of accessories which are available to buy via our site. These are all handmade and one-off designs using original vintage pieces. From vintage brooches to antique necklaces we work the old with the new to create beautiful jewellery and headpieces for every occasion.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Part way through the designing and making process for one of our bespoke customers, she sent us an email with a photo of the detail on her shoes. She was so excited about them and asked if we could incorporate the swirl pattern on them into her piece. We agreed and found the most perfect vintage parts that echoed the swirl perfectly. For her the smallest detail was so important and she was thrilled that we were able to include it in her comb.

What about your business are you most proud of?
We still pinch ourselves when we see photos of brides wearing our creations. As everything is made by hand lots of love, time and energy goes into each piece and we feel truly honoured to be able to create something unique for you to wear on what is one of the most special days of your life.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Choose what you want not what you think will make everyone else happy - it is your day!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
We love weddings where there are personal touches - it reflects the bride and grooms personality.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I have met many brides who know exactly what they want but on the other hand I've met plenty who say 'I don't really know what I want in my hair'. For those brides who are not so sure what to go for I take inspiration from your dress, the overall styling of your big day and what is important to you about your wedding. If possible we can meet somewhere to suit you and you can try on our range of ready to buy items and narrow down what you would like to the smallest detail like the finish on the crystals or diamantes. If we can not meet in person we can have a consultation via Skype or email. Once I get a sense of your style and look, I would go away, find materials, create possible lay outs and send you photos. After discussing with you what you like we will then start constructing your unique piece! For those brides who know what they would like I will source the materials to make it and send photos of work in progress so that you can be fully involved in how your finished piece looks. Alternatively if you have a cherished item of jewellery that you would like to have included in your wedding but may not necessarily want to wear it as it is, we can use it to create something new that can be worn on your big day.
