TIDING OF MAGPIES
Delicate, unusual, bespoke and ready-to-wear jewellery
Created entirely by hand by founder Florence Sturt-Joy in the heart of Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, Tiding of Magpies’ online store offers beautiful, individual bridal jewellery at affordable prices. This independent jeweller creates dainty, exquisite pieces for the entire bridal party, and the wide range of semi-precious stones they work with will complement any colour scheme or wedding style. Tiding of Magpies’ bridal speciality is reworking that classic wedding stone, the pearl, into modern, eye-catching and unique designs, including threader earrings, teardrop pendants, and graceful lariats. Their modern, understated pieces are elegant enough to wear with a wedding gown, but have an ease about them which means you’ll continue to enjoy them long after the big day.
Custom orders are also a key element of Tiding of Magpies’ bridal offering, and designer Florence loves nothing more than to get stuck into creating the perfect bespoke pieces for brides, bridesmaids, and mothers-of-the-bride alike. She provides a comprehensive custom design service where clients can be part of the process from start to finish, with plenty of communication and input, but with all the details are taken care of so clients don’t feel they are having to work on one more thing at such a busy time.
The setting of the Jewellery Quarter, with its storied history, architecture and design, has a huge influence on Florence’s collections, but she also takes inspiration from found objects and 21st century minimalism. Her pieces focus on the possibilities of shape and texture within delicate jewellery pieces, with the goal of proving that designs don’t have to be large and flashy to make a statement.
