Multi award-winning wedding accessories designer Julieann lovingly handcrafts her elegant bridal headpieces and jewellery in her home studio based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
Julieann learned traditional bead working techniques, embroidery and sewing skills from her mother and grandmother and took the plunge and became a full-time designer/maker in 2005 initially creating fashion jewellery. Increasingly she was asked to design and hand-made pieces for weddings and within a couple of years bridal accessories formed by far the majority of her work. Since then her wedding business has gone from strength to strength. She draws inspiration from her cottage style garden and the countryside around her which is reflected in her unique wedding accessory designs. Self-taught, long forgotten sewing and wiring techniques from a bygone era when embellishments were individually hand-created are at the centre of her work. She sources the loveliest raw materials including genuine sparkling Swarovski crystals and glittering diamanté; real freshwater pearls in luscious colours and shapes; soft silk ribbons most of which are botanically hand-dyed in Britain using plants picked from cottage gardens and the hedgerows; treasured hand-carved vintage mother of pearl buttons; and intricate pieces of exquisite lace.
Julieann firmly believes that choosing your wedding headpiece and bridal jewellery should be one of the highlights in your wedding planning - after all gorgeous weddings deserve exquisite accessories.
