Hollywood Glamour


How’s this for Hollywood Glamour?

It’s not every day that you get to really step up the glamour, but if you have a special occasion then it’s a great chance. Once you’ve chosen your clothes a few bits of sparkle can add the perfect finishing touch.

How much is too much? Well thats up to you really. CoCo Chanel said that you should study your finished look and remove one accessory, but if you ask our advice then we promise to give you an honest opinion on what really works.

We have gorgeous new pieces arriving every week and our range changes constantly. If you’re looking for beautiful accessories just visit us to see what we have in stock. We can show you our catalogues too just in case there isn’t already enough choice.

The pictures below show the fantastic quality of our range but to really see them at their best you need to get them under some light. Whether it’s day light outdoors, or inside, or even by candlelight these sparkling stones are flawless.

If you cant visit us then we’re happy to advise you via email, and we can post the goodies out to you too.

I have a truly stunning Mother of the Bride to share with you today!

This is the lovely Margaret in her very own, bespoke designs. Her dress is a variation on our Amanda style. This flattering shape with side swept pleats suits almost every one. Margaret wanted her dress cut with a sweetheart neckline so we were delighted to oblige. She chose a Silver Pure Silk Dupion fabric with a contrasting shade of Turquoise Pure SIlk Dupion for the highlights.

Margaret also chose two jackets for the two separate celebrations – the first is a longer length version of our Evie jacket in Pure Silk Dupion. The jacket collar facing and lining was in Turquioise silk and the sleeve buttons are Swarovski crystal. The second jacket is a panelled variation on our Lola jacket in a heavily embroidered beaded lace in a darker shade of silver.

Naturally the waist embellishment on the dress had to match each look so we made it removable. To cordinate with Silk jacket there is a matching bow with contrast lining and a diamante brooch, and for the lace jacket a lace bow with a different brooch.

Every detail of these pieces was chosen by Margaret to be exactly what she wanted and we loved guiding her through all the choices. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures of your family and gorgeous daughter Margaret. You can see more images below
