When I came across Klaire Van Elton’s bridal adornments last year I instantly fell in love with them and I hope you will too. Of course the ingenious origami designs fit perfectly with my Japanese inspired dresses and my fascination with this ancient paper art. Then there are the gorgeous lace and filigree pieces which complement my rural French style dresses as though they were designed together. Klaire Van Elton’s pieces are original and eclectic and feel very at home in my bespoke ‘atelier’ and shop.
Bath based Nickie Portman has been designing jewellery for many years but has recently launched her first bridal jewellery collection which uses freshwater pearls, crystals and other semi-precious stones. Nickie’s designs are feminine and delicate and I think they fill a gap in the market for necklaces, earrings and bracelets which subtly enhance a bride’s outfit without overpowering.
All of these beautiful bridal accessories will soon be available on my new online shop but please do come and try them on at my wedding dress shop in Bath.
