I have always loved an Old Hollywood look - it's so elegant and timeless, so I decided to create a collection showcasing some bling and this time I wanted to add some jewellery pieces to match my headpieces. Quite often I give the advice that if you are wearing a headpiece for your wedding you should limit your additional accessories but with an Old Hollywood look, it's difficult to go wrong with a headpiece, matching cuff bracelet and necklace! Less isn't always more.
I truly love this old world feel - the collection has a lot of crystals and pearls, but have been put together in a way that the headpieces and jewellery aren't too blingy and are slightly subdued to not appear too sparkly. This collection can also be worn for special occasions - I find the necklaces and cuff bracelets are fantastic for adding a bit of sparkle to a cocktail dress. All the components for these pieces have been painstakingly hand-sewn (actually it's quite relaxing) to create these beautifully heavily beaded pieces.
We had a lot of fun on this shoot and it is one of my favourites to date. I had a wonderful team in creating my 1930's Old Hollywood look which is also modern enough to be worn with outfits don't quite fit the Old Hollywood theme. These pieces are fantastic for when you want to feel glamorous with minimal effort - just pair one of these pieces with a little black dress and you're all set!
