This sparkling collection of bridal hair accessories was created in response to requests for fine, white vintage-inspired floral adornments reminiscent of Downton Abbey.
Tiny curling flowers, sculpted in fine leather, are painted in soft white shades and accentuated with burnished copper, Swarovski crystals and pearls.
The leather used has a seeming paper-like fragility which is incredibly beautiful, while still maintaining the strength, flexibility and durability of thicker weights. What I particularly love is that it has very humble origins: discarded remnants from the book-binding industry. How inspiring it is to create elegant beauty from that which was deemed useless and fit only for the bin! Such pieces whisper to us of journeys of courage and perseverence, the result of which shimmers in radiant serenity.
“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien 'The Fellowship of the Ring'
These shimmering treasures provide a tiny glimpse into the variations and styles possible. Should you not find what you require, please ask. I will be delighted to work with you to create a unique design especially for you.
