About

Hello there. I'm Nicola and I live in a little town near Birmingham in the UK and I've been making things ever since I can remember!

When I was little I remember my grandmothers teaching me how to sew and knit and I've always loved colour and texture. I turned down a place at art school in favour of going away to University to do a management degree, which gave me a great insight into life, but left me feeling creatively unfulfilled.

I'm so lucky to be able to work from home now, around the social diary of my 7 year old daughter, and design and hand make fascinators, tiaras, hair pieces and jewelry from scratch using the most beautiful materials, feathers and crystals to create original head wear for my clients so that they can feel super special at their occasion, be it a wedding, christening, race day or prom.

My designs are custom made to order and the choices of colour are endless, meaning that you really can have something unique that you've had a hand in creating. I've been fortunate enough to supply customers all over the world with my designs and have many repeat custom from those clients.

I really love working with my customers to help them create something extra special for their occasion and something that you can't buy out in the shops so if you see anything that you like but would like to change it in any way, please don't hesitate to convo me and we can sort something out.

Thanks for stopping by my shop. I hope to work with you soon!

Nicola :)
