Botanic Luxe Headband
The Botanic Luxe Headband is a popular headpiece from my 2020 collection and brides have fallen in love with the floral embellishment and opulence of this beautiful headband.
Choosing your accessories can be a big decision, often we have questions when browsing online - perhaps you would like to know how a piece is created, or how it was inspired? Maybe you would like to know if a piece can be made in a unique colour or a different size?
I'd like to invite you behind the scenes to learn a little more about the Botanic Luxe headband and help answer all of those questions.

When creating a new collection I often refer back to vintage couture & decoration. I find imagery that resonates with the feel of the pieces id like to create and go from there. For the Botanic collection, I was channelling guilt vines, pearls and soft blush pallets with embossed leaves and sprawling vines - like those that can be found in the s/s haute couture collection from Giambattista Valli
'The quality of the materials is everything when creating a luxury accessory'.
Once an inspiration board has been created I begin sourcing elements to create the look. After many years of experience, I now only source the best quality elements for my designs, including non-tarnish gold & silver plating & Swarovski crystals.
The quality of the materials is everything when creating a luxury accessory.
Once all the elements have been sourced and selected creation of the design begins with leaves and crystals individually twisted into vines and metals flowers layered and embellished. They are then pinned into place and hand-sewn to secure, ensuring that the placement of flowers and leaves are well distributed and evenly balanced.
