Announcement   Welcome to Honeysuckle & Scotch! A shop filled with custom-made hair combs, special occasion accessories, and vintage-inspired bridal fascinators to accompany a veil on your most cherished day.

I design for a living, and creating hand-made treasures is my passion. I hope you find something unique and beautiful here - whether to embellish a gorgeous hairstyle, enhance a special celebration, add a bit of glamour to your look, or offer lovingly as a keepsake gift.

Everything in the shop is a one-of-a-kind, custom piece. Each detail is hand-placed with care, and every consignment is hand-made lovingly from start to finish. Designs reflect the individual client's style and begin with an inspiration board to capture the vision - followed by a hand drawn sketch of the custom piece to come.

Once complete, your treasure is secured to a handmade silk pillow scented with French lavender, packaged in a keepsake box and shipped with printed care instructions.

I offer a limited amount of consignments a calendar year to allow enough time for each custom piece - so be sure to get in touch early to confirm available dates.

I really cannot say this enough I am so happy I found Abby to make this veil for me!! I wanted a veil as a statement piece for my church 10 year gala celebration. I didn't want just any veil which could of been easily ordered, I wanted a custom made veil filled with Swarovski Crystals. In showing her a few picture samples as to the look I was going for, I must say she did more than nailed it, honestly SHE DID IT BETTER, down to the fabric, the size, the placement of the cystals, the combs, and the creativity. Everything was flawless even down to her great customer service, she was very helpful, mindful, and responsive. I am so so very happy with this order, And I definitely will be ordering another piece soon!

I am absolutely 100% satisfied and infatuated with this beautiful custom made piece! It is flawless- the color, the size, the style and the craftsmanship are all superb! Abby is a very thoughtful and caring designer who takes her time to get to know her customers and what they need. She texted, called and emailed me several times to understand my vision and she nailed it! The product arrived exactly when she said it would. It was packaged with love and thoughtfulness. When I opened my package I felt like royalty because it was so personal, unique and posh. The items were also securely packed and flawless upon opening. I will wear this on my wedding day with knowing that the one who made it for me really cares. I have the most beautiful and mazing hair fascinator and veil on the planet- Thank you Abby!

About

The story about us...

Thanks for checking out the shop! My name's Abby Shepard and I'm a Boston-based designer, illustrator, and 'maker of pretty things'.

The shop's beginnings started in the fall of 2012 when I was getting married in Vermont. I was swept away in a beautiful design storm. Until then, I'd never considered my design work to be focused on weddings - but everything was so inspired... I was hooked! Once the wedding was in the rear view, I was left with an extensive list of custom designs that friends - and friends of friends - started requesting for themselves. And so it began...that is simply how Honeysuckle & Scotch came to be.

Since then, the shop has grown from custom hair combs and wedding fascinators - to lariat necklaces, hairpins, clips and veils. I'm inspired by every client and each piece is a uniquely their's. My clients range from knowing exactly what they want - to having a loose idea that needs to be guided along. Either way, I love the experience of meeting someone new and helping to create something completely custom and uniquely theirs to cherish.

Growing up with a designing mom, I was taught from the time I could rummage through her studio, the importance and impact of quality materials. I take the highest pride in each-and-every detail of each-and-every piece created. I use only the finest materials from reputable, high-end suppliers, that include Swarovski crystals, pearls, and findings, to vintage lace, antique findings, fresh water pearls, luxurious silk, tulle, organza, chiffon, feathers and more.

I've worked as a designer for a long time and I'm used to working on my own, but I love collaboration and feedback. I schedule proofs along the process for all of my clients to stay involved along the way. I'm also completely comfortable taking the reigns to allow for those who just want to be surprised by the end result.

Due to the highly-customized work involved in my designs, I try to limit the amount of consignments I take on throughout the year. I plan out my calendar carefully to ensure each project stays on track for delivery dates and I request clients get in touch as early as possible to allow time for the creative process to flourish!

If you like something you've seen in the shop - or have an idea of something but can't find it - I'm happy to help and look forward to working with you!
