My Story

Hello I’m Julieann…

I grew up learning bead working, embroidery and sewing skills from my amazing mother and grandmothers. My love of colour, shape and textures is all in my genes!

I took the plunge to become a full time designer/maker in 2005. Initially creating fashion jewellery, I was increasingly asked to design and make wedding headpieces as well as bridal jewellery. Since then my wedding accessory business has gone from strength to strength and as they say the rest is history.

Every single piece is designed and lovingly hand crafted by me in my Shrewsbury home studio. I carefully source only the loveliest raw materials - real freshwater pearls in luscious colours, genuine sparkling Swarovski components, botanically dyed soft silk ribbons, exquisite lace and treasured hand carved vintage buttons.

My cottage style garden and the countryside around me inspire much of my work and you'll see this reflected in my unique wedding accessory designs.

My beloved garden is my own little piece of paradise and I try to make it as wildlife friendly as possible. I grow most of the veg we eat and love cooking our meals from scratch.

Mumma to three grown up children (empty nesting is hard!) and two energetic working cocker spaniels. When I’m not in my garden you’ll find us exploring the beautiful Shropshire countryside around our home.

Believer in soul mates; Malc and I were engaged two weeks after we met and married within the year. 30+ years later I’m still a diehard romantic.

I always read the last page of a book first, drink way too much tea and can’t walk past a charity shop without looking for treasures.
