Beautiful Hair Adornments and Jewellery
Made entirely by hand
Vintage Button Bridal Designs was born out of a passion and complete obsession for beautiful jewellery and accessories from times past. After my little sister got married and inspired by the jewellery, accessories and everlasting bouquet I made, I decided to start designing and making a range of vintage inspired hair adornments, jewellery and accessories for brides who were after something just a little bit different.
I work from my small studio surrounded by all sorts of pretty things in The Silk Mill in Frome, Somerset - a beautifully restored textiles mill and now home to over twenty artists, designers and creatives.
I studied Fine Art and Literature at University and learned how to make jewellery from precious metals before creating my little business. Now I spend my time creating intricate, detailed and exquisite pieces where every stitch, bead, pearl, sequin and crystal is meticulously wired or sewn by hand to create beautiful, unashamedly romantic and feminine heirlooms to be passed down through generations. I use traditional tools and techniques from tambour bead embroidery to couture hand embroidery, bead weaving and wire wrapping using the finest and most luxurious materials. I also love to use colour from soft, subtle shades to more intense and vibrant colours.
Beautiful accessories can make all the difference and to be able to create these little works of art for women is a great priviledge. I love creating special, meaningful designs and working on bespoke pieces so, please do contact me to discuss your dream accessories.
