Glass Oyster designs beautiful bridal accessories such as headpieces and jewellery. Each design is made from beautiful finds such as re-worked lace trims and appliqués, vintage millinery leaves and flowers. All the designs as intricately hand embroidered using a mix of modern and vintage beads - some of these found in antique and bric a brac shops and markets, harvested from old necklaces and beaded purses. Each piece is a complete one off, never to be repeated. Glass Oyster will be introducing an exciting new range of accessories later this year - including capelets, cover ups and belts.
The last place you visited/travelled to and found really inspiring?
Polesdon Lacey near Dorking, Surrey. A National Trust property with stunning house and grounds. The house is packed full of beautiful paintings, objects d’art, jewellery and furniture. The grounds are full of places to explore.
The last exciting purchase you made for your business?
I havn't purchased it yet, but I’m on the look out for a vintage haberdashers glass topped cabinet to store and display my work in my studio.
Tell us about a wedding brand you think is really exciting?
For me its got to be Joanne Fleming design. Her dresses are so glamorous and intricately detailed. Another favourite is Rue de Seine. I just love how they combine lots of detailing with flowing, effortless shapes.
Any recommendations of places to eat/drink/stay/do in Hampshire or the South?
