My first order from the US of A! Cassandra saw my blog and got in touch, what a clever lady! I really enjoyed working with her, she had some great ideas, and we made a beautiful vintage hair slide and vintage pearl necklace for her wedding day. There wasn't much time to get it all done and sent to Arizona in time for her big day, but luckily it all went to plan and it sounds like they had an amazing day. Wedding photos to follow soon, but for now check out what I made for her...

of pave-set crystals and pearls on a silver tone.

The necklace had an original vintage clasp added.

I'd like to show you my first bridal design which includes some colour. My beautiful customer Nasreen wore a stunning dress with a modern twist, which included some red in it. She loved my vintage designs but wanted to add some red to one of the headbands that I had in my shop.
This is the vintage headband I adapted to suit her dress. It was made from original vintage pave-set crystals and red Swarovski beads.
As with all of With Love from Pearl's jewellery and hair adornments, the headband was carefully packaged along with a handwritten note to the bride, which she will be able to read back and reminisce any time, perhaps even hand it down to her daughter one day.
Nasreen also had some necklaces made for her bridesmaids. Here's one of them:
There is some pretty big news that's just hit the wedding scene, a new boutique collection from my wonderful wedding friends at The Original Wedding Tea Towel. I am pleased to announce that I am one of the designers to have taken part in the new boutique section of Wedding Tea Towels

I have been very busy since Christmas with orders for brides that are getting married this year. Bespoke vintage bridal headbands still seem to be the most popular, with the absolute favourite being Polly's band, which is the first ever design I created. As you know, Pearl likes to keep her designs as one offs, so each headband since has been adjusted to suit the bride.
