Inspired by historical design, vintage findings and working creatively with colour, I design and create unique tiaras and bridal hair adornments.
Established: September 2015
Having inherited money from my gran, I decided to ditch a career in teaching to pursue my passion for art, design and all things that sparkle. And so, at the age of 38, I packed away my markbook and pen and enrolled at The London School of Jewellery to gain a qualification in tiara making.
18 months later, I am the proud owner of Wisheart Tiara Design. Based in Suffolk, I work from the conservatory at the back of my house where I meet brides; draw up designs and create pretty crowns and hair adornments.
My designs appeal to the alternative wedding market, with some recent creations incorporating gold gilded skulls; diamante unicorns and re-working an heirloom pearl necklace into a floral bridal comb.
My biggest fans are my daughters who love the fact I make real life crowns; my 12 year old son who educates me on all technological aspects of my business; and my husband who, when the going gets tough, refuses to let me give up my dream.
