Victoria Mary Vintage ~ I set up Victoria Mary Vintage after I married in December 2009.
My wedding day look was very vintage and I really wanted to keep the vintage look going throughout my accessories.
I was wearing my grandmother’s pearls (a gorgeous double row of them!) and combed antique sales until found the perfect pair of vintage rhinestone chandelier earrings.
I then made my hair comb to match using a vintage rhinestone leaf brooch, accented with small pearls and swarovski crystals.
Soon after that friends were asking me to design their wedding jewellery and headpieces, so I launched my business in early 2010 selling a selection of one-of-a-kind pieces – tiaras, headbands, necklaces, bracelets, earrings…
I have been making jewellery in one form or another for my whole life, so I adore now being able to make bespoke handmade wedding jewellery for brides.
I love the the look of vintage jewellery – there is something just so glamorous about it, when the shiny newness has worn off leaving just the well-worn sparkle.
And I love thinking of the history of a piece of jewellery – isn’t it fabulous that the brooch that’s been refashioned into your bridal headband was perhaps once worn on a gorgeous dress to a decadent party in the 20’s?
As a whole, my business is inspired by the feminine glamour of the 20th century leading up to the early 60’s, and the care that women took in how they dressed themselves – making sure their lipstick was perfect and their hat, shoes and handbag matched before going out; their hair was always neat, and it was perfectly acceptable to wear little gloves wherever you went.
I like to think the jewellery I create will make the women who wear it on their wedding day feel just as beautiful and feminine, and will give them something gorgeous to treasure long after their wedding day.
I have just released my new collection, Millésime. Inspired by the romance of days gone by and timeless, feminine French couture, the range is a 46-piece collection of statement headdresses, bridal caps, sashes and jewellery.
Millésime, nine months in the making, is the leading range for Victoria Mary Vintage offering beautiful handmade bridal accessories with soft millinery and floral influences and a hint of Jazz Age sparkle.
Thanks so much for sharing Vicky I LOVE this collection! What do you think ladies? Mesmerisingly pretty or what?
