I'm excited to announce myself and Donna Crain have collaborated to create a stunning vintage inspired collection of handmade bridal hair pieces for all my beautiful brides to be. The collection is perfect for brides who want to add a little detail and glamour to their wedding hair.
London Brides Magazine wanted to find out about our collection, here are some of the questions we were asked:
Q. What inspired you to design your own range?
Gemma: I’m constantly inspired by my brides and the collection reflects all the creative ideas over the years. My brides want stunning, unique pieces that reflect who they are, but it’s not always easy to find the right accessories. I wanted to offer my brides a complete bridal look.
Q. What made you want to work with Donna Crain?
Gemma: I saw Donna at the National Wedding Show and my first though was ‘wow’! Every piece she designs captures everything my brides have asked for. There’s something about the way she works, her energy, and her attention to detail. Donna says your jewellery shouldn’t be an after thought. It should be something you can wear again and again after your wedding. Each piece is handmade and carefully crafted.
Q. The last year has been a whirlwind of success for you. What brought you into the world of jewellery design?
Donna: “I decided to launch Donna Crain after making my own wedding jewellery. My career during the past 15 years has been in graphic design but I’ve always been creative.. I feel incredibly passionate about designing the right accessories to perfect a brides look and It’s wonderful to be part of that.”
Q. What does the collaboration bring to the bridal market?
Donna: Brides will be able to try on the whole collection during their hair trial with Gemma and choose the exact piece to fully compliment the look for their special day.
Gemma: At a brides trial i style her hair and makeup to create the perfect look, for that perfect day. I can now complete this with hair pieces in a bridal hair trial.
