Head piece with silk velvet flowers

This head piece is created using antique laces and pure silk vintage velvet. Hand beaded with seed beads and crystals.

I make Head pieces & Tiaras & jewellery using reclaimed antique laces, reworked onto silk chiffon and embellished with beading.

Most of my designs are one off.’s and commissions are welcome.




The fragility of lace

The fragility of lace, fragmented by time, reworked into wearable jewellery and adornments.

Antique laces are hand sewn onto the finest pure silk chiffons and embellished with glass beads, pearls & crystals, including demo precious stones, creating unique pieces to treasure.

Each item is entirely hand sewn to preserve the fragility of old laces, preserving them for future generations.

From these antique scraps, I crate necklaces, earrings, adornments, including my Tiaras.

I offer a friendly professional service at all times. Please feel free to contact me with any requests or commissions.

Lady Hamilton’s Tiaras

Welcome to my first of many postings.

I have ventured far on my travels and on my return from Venice, I created this sweet almost confectionery delight. The silk roses swirl around the down with divine little crystal flowers on gold stems. The venetians are so Inspiring , the colours, the Munro glass and the delightful canals. This lovely lady reminded me of the colours of the Gondoliers on the canals.IMG_2720

This is another little creation. A selection of silks made into two lovely flowers and embellished with glass pearls and crystals. I have attached a short tulle veil to the comb which a slightly fun, sassy appeal for Brides.



Vintage Inspired Tiara

This is one of my favourite Tiaras. A Vintage style with hand worked silk roses, pearls & crystals, semi precious Mother of Pearl stones with a little colour.

If you like any or all of my products and would like one for yourself, then do please contact me. Everything is hand made, so please allow 4-6 weeks. Of course I can do rush orders, but these might cost a little extra. I am already planning my diary for the summer, with so many events it is quite hard to choose which to attained and my poor Smytheson diary is positively groaning!

Bye for now
