If you're seeking a beautifully bespoke finish to your bridal ensemble, then we recommend you feast your eyes on the hair adornments and fine jewellery of Bee Lavish ' and prepare to fall in love with the ethereal beauty of the pretty porcelain and fine silver creations. 'I am inspired by all the wonders around me,' says artist-jeweller Gayle Rew. 'I live and work in beautiful Devon and have combined my skills to find something unique that I love to create.' Handcrafting her elegant collection of seashells, roses and forget-me-not flowers, each item of natural porcelain can be finished with real 22ct gold, mother of pearl lustre, glazes and luxurious velvet-effect finishes, which are then combined and hand-wired with silver or gold-plated wire into eye-catching bridal accessories.
'I have a bespoke collection of handcrafted items, though being entirely made by hand these will always be individual and unique. I also love to offer a custom design service to tailor and personalise my designs for different styles; perhaps adding different leaves, flowers, feathers or adding birds or dragonflies to the design,' says Gayle. Examples of previous commissions include clustered gypsophila hair combs, lovebird hairpins and buttonholes, and floral hair vines and halos. Bespoke designs can also incorporate silver, gold, freshwater pearls, beads, crystals, semi-precious or precious stones, vintage beads or buttons. The result will be a delicate, exquisite and truly unique piece of art to wear on that most special of days.
