I wanted to thank you for making me such an amazing piece for an affordable price. Your service was great and the dress looked very beautiful with this simple satin belt on. Belt was made to order and and of high quality.

The copper (or rose gold colour) version of this simple but beautiful circlet
My slightly bigger boxes have arrived for the garters - don't they look handsome in one? A little bit less cramped than the smaller boxes sent before :-)
A different colour for this wedding garter design, to match the bride's wedding dress and colour theme. Previously in blue (Something Blue), today gold :-)

About

Making beautiful fabric flowers for bridal or fashion accessories

For many years while I worked in big companies in Research and Development, I really wanted the freedom to be more creative and 'hands-on'. I did love my jobs in R&D, and always kept art and textiles as a hobby - but never really got enough time to indulge in them. Then came my daughter by surprise, so with the natural career break, I decided to properly put it on hold until my daughter is a little older, and concentrate instead on doing something totally different.

I love creating new pieces using fabrics and other textile materials. The process generally starts with selecting suitable fabrics - based in their colour, composition, texture etc., and ends with carefully stitching each handmade flower onto a base - whether that is a hair comb, a headband, a stem, a sash, and the list is endless. In between, there is cutting of shapes for the petals, singeing them (or finishing the edges otherwise), twisting, turning, layering, stitching, beading, and lots of patience!

The shop is called Blue Lily Magnolia because it is the Chinese name of my mum who is sadly no longer with us. It is also the middle name of my daughter. As I made fabric flowers, a floral name sounded just perfect.

I work from my studio in Nantwich, a little town in the county of Cheshire in the United Kingdom. Plenty of beautiful gardens and countryside nearby to take inspiration from!

Hope you enjoyed browsing through the shop, and wish you a very good day :-).

Hello and welcome to Blue Lily Magnolia!

I hope that you have enjoyed viewing the pieces that are on offer. All items listed are either ready to go (specified in the listing) or shown as examples of designs. For items made to order with your chosen colour palette, please note that your order will not be identical to the listing as everything is handmade and textile materials love to have their own individual behaviour! But it will be very faithful to the design.

You can be as involved as you want in the design of the item - through choosing the colour palette, approving the swatches, mixing and matching the type of flowers that you'd like. Or you can just decide you like the look of the items on show and want a similar one. Either way works for me.

Any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Payment
For ready made items and items made to order to a listed design, payment is required with the order. I accept most credit cards and PayPal.

For custom-designs and custom-made orders, a deposit may be required to confirm your order with the balance payable upon completion of the work.
The deposit amount varies with the order type and is between 10-50% of the total.

The deposit is used to purchase the raw materials needed for the item ordered, and is also used as payment to start the work. I understand that in some cases customers may want to change their mind or cancel an order. In these instances, I regret that if money and time has already been spent by the time the cancellation is made, the deposit is non-refundable. I recommend that you contact me as quickly as possible if you are thinking of cancelling a custom order, so that I can stop any expenses towards the work. In good faith, if I have not yet purchased raw materials, or started any work, I will reimburse the deposit. Likewise, if I have only purchased material and not started any work, I will reimburse part of the deposit, deducting my expenses.

Throughout the process I like to keep the customer updated with photos of work in progress, so should there be any concern, I would encourage the customer to let me know sooner rather than later.

For cancellations made up to 1week (7 calendar days) before the due completion date, the remaining balance will also be required, as by this time most of the work would be completed and most custom orders cannot be resold. For cancellations made 8-21 calendar days before the completion, 50% of the balance will be due. For cancellations made 22days and sooner, 25% of the balance will be required.
Shipping
For each item, please check the dispatch time on each listing details.

Your item will be delivered by Royal Mail or Parcel Force in the UK and where specified only, recorded delivery. For international deliveries, items are sent either by standard mail or by tracked deliveries. If your item is not specified to be recorded/tracked but you would prefer it to be, please either purchase a shipping upgrade where offered, or send me a message for a separate quote.

When your item is dispatched, I will send you a dispatched confirmation, with a tracking number where available, and the courier used.

If your are purchasing from outside the UK, please note that postage timelines are generally 5-10 working days from the dispatched date, and in some circumstances can take longer. For all tracked /recorded deliveries, I will provide tracking details so that we both know where the item is.

Certain countries will require customs payment for receipt of the items. This is the responsibility of the buyer.

If I have not provided an option for delivery outside of the UK, please contact me with your location so that I can provide a quote.
Refunds and Exchanges
I hope that you will be happy with your order and that your item is as you expect. Note that for items made to order, there are slight variations between products as everything is hand-made so will never be identical. If you need to return your purchase for any reason, the following applies:

Ready-to-Go items and Items Made to Order to a Listed Design:
If you are unhappy with your item, please let me know within 14 days that you wish to return it, and please return it unused and in its original condition within 28 days from purchasing. A full refund of the original payment and postage will be provided upon receipt of the item. The sender is responsible for the return postage and providing proof of postage.

If your item is in anyway damaged when you receive it, please contact me within 14 days of receiving the item with photographic evidence and send me back the item within the next 14 days, so that I can pursue a claim with the courier. Your original payment and postage, and return postage will be refunded upon receipt of the damaged item and a receipt for postage.

If your item is loss in the post, you will be offered the choice of a full refund of the item and postage, or a replacement item. Please note that for postage to outside of the UK may be significantly delayed at customs, and therefore may not be considered lost for several weeks.

Custom-Made Items:
This section is applicable for items that are totally custom-made to a final design not listed in the shop. Custom-made items are unfortunately not refundable, unless they are received faulty or damaged. If this is the case, please contact me within 14 days of receiving the item with photographic evidence and send me back the item within the next 14 days, so that I can pursue a claim with the courier. Your original payment and postage, and return postage will be refunded upon receipt of the damaged item and a receipt for postage.

For refunds of deposits, please refer to the Payment Policy above.
Additional policies and FAQs
For custom orders, please send me a custom order request from the shop page. Once received, we can discuss the requirements at no cost. I will then make a quote based on your request.

Work will only start upon both parties agreeing the details and payment.
