Sometimes pictures just say it more than words. Just how beautiful is this headband made with tiny little vintage clay flowers each arranged on delicate vintage lace. The detail is just stunning don’t you think?
Today on the blog I’m welcoming our new sponsor – the fabulous Tallulah’s Trinkets and the lovely Annie who is the lady behind all these vintage head pieces and other bridal jewellery. I’m a huge fan of hair accessories as I think they can really make a statement.
Annie works her magic by taking original vintage pieces of jewellery and turning them into something unique and a complete one-off – just like this headband below. This ‘Lucille’ headband is made form three vintage brooches wired into a design using Swarovski pearls and diamante.
At just 3 months old Tallulah’s Trinkets is probably the newest business I’ve featured on the blog.
Tallulah’s Trinkets was launched this April at the Designer Bridal Show – Birmingham, although the behind the scenes work has been going on for many months. Talulah’s Trinkets was lovingly created by myself to to bring the discerning bride a luxurious and delicate collection of hair adornments and jewellery. Annie of Tallulah’s Trinkets
Annie makes all her items from her home in Worcestershire, and these include bridal tiaras, jewellery, hairpins and combs. They are pieces that you can be sure no one else will have, and pieces that you can pass down the generations.
I think a hair piece can add such elegance to your wedding hair, and can be a real feature particularly with a simple dress. Some of Annie’s pieces remind me of that famous hair comb Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
I asked Annie more about the inspiration behind her designs and products.
My inspirations change with the wind – current fashions, old movies – one minute I can be looking at a picture in the book and next walking in the countyside on my horse and an idea will pop into my mind. The next minute with my desk covered in crystals and components I’ll try to create my vision.
For a more classic look I love these pearls below…
For a vintage-inspired bride Annie would recommend the Dolores hair slide piece or possibly the Nancy headband – she loves both!
So beautiful! For me these designs conjure up images of vintage romance and glamour. I also love this 1920s-inspired piece below.
I also asked Annie what she loves most about her job…
I love dealing with beautiful, enthusiastic brides whose ideas and visions for headdresses and jewellery have gone on to be some of my best pieces. I love interacting with my brides and being able to create their vision for their special day!!
A new collection of original vintage and vintage designs will be unveiled at the Designer Vintage Show in October. I can’t wait to see.
And Annie’s one tip for brides-to-be?
This is your special day – a day to remember for the rest of your life, a day that you have subconsciously been planning since you were little. ENJOY! Enjoy the planning and the purchasing and the hen party and lastly the perfect day to end it all. ENJOY !!
Absolutely agree! On that note I am going to take a leaf out of Annie’s book and enjoy may day off work. Hubby is taking me on a surprise day trip – very exciting!
