This beautiful cape is made with soft tulle and hand sewn rhinestone, pearls, beads – Perfect for a glamorous bride wanting that add vintage look to their dress!

These casual angel wings are an elegant addition to any ensemble! Plumes of dark iridescent feathers cascade down the front and back of your shoulders. Each black rooster feather has been trimmed and individually layered. The feathers are secured to a sheer netting bolero.

This is the extra long version of Lorigami’s snow queen capes and can be made in any colour combination.

Recently, the lovely girls at Weddington Way contacted me about their awesome bridesmaid collection and asked me “If you were the Maid of Honor and the bride asked you to style the bridesmaid look for her big festive New Year’s Eve wedding, what would you suggest?”.

Fine Jewellery By Alex Monroe

MMI_2740Fine bark diamond ring with vine detail

Today I get to share with you the gorgeous work of Alex Monroe, who has been making jewellery for the past 25 years. These fine intricate rings are inspired by nature and British eccentricity bringing a cute, whimsical charm which makes each piece it’s own.

Having trained at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Alex started making his own jewellery in 1986 out of a small workshop in a picturesque, Victorian cobbled yard in south London. To this day, all of his jewellery is still hand made by a team of highly skilled jewellers in that same studio.

Alex makes all of his original designs by hand using traditional jewellery making techniques, and he will often craft his own tools to help with the creation of a new piece. After his initial sketches, he will move to his bench. Here he will start working directly into pieces of silver to create the original item. Working with silver instead of wax allows him to achieve the high levels of detail and texture that are such a feature of his jewellery.
