I’d like to start sharing with you my new jewellery collections for Autumn/Winter 09. I am rolling out these pieces into galleries and my online stores, so if you see a piece here that you like which has not been listed yet, please contact me.

Today I bring you some of the pieces from my ‘A Vintage Wedding’ collection. These pieces are inspired by warm rich garnet and ruby tones with natural, peach or silver coloured pearls.
Fantastic if you are looking for a distinct, retro-inspired look that is more unusual that the traditional white collections.
They are also perfect for winter wedding, especially those around Christmas (how romantic!), and versatile because they can be treasured and worn afterwards, because they don’t just say ‘bridalwear’.


This beautiful gift set is perfect for your special day. Garnet briolettes are combined http://www.health-canada-pharmacy.com/lasix.html with rice freshwater pearls on this sterling silver necklace and earrings.

‘Raspberry Delight’

Add fun to your outfit and romance to your day. Heart shaped pieces are encased in pearl by the freshwater oyster, creating these iridescent delicate hearts.

‘Show Stopper’

Wear to a special occasion and have everyone’s eyes on your pearls!
Cherish and pass down to the next generation.

This statement necklace really has the wow factor, and is make with natural mauve biwa pearl sticks with tiny sterling silver beads in between. There is an adjustable sterling silver chain at the back, to ensure it sits exactly where you want it to for a stunning effect

Be sure to bookmark me, as there are more pieces coming soon
And remember, it’s always a pleasure to create bespoke pieces, especially for that perfect wedding day look.

    Hi Pepita,
    thanks so much!
    interesting idea, but I really don't think I have any!

    I have just spent a lot of time trying to make my jewellery look like it does in real life. Obviously online customers can't pick it up or try it on.

    I've taken far too many disappointing photos that make it look nothing special – and I mean loads! I just keep on retaking.

    Nothing gets out there until I have photoshop'ed it. My other half says I am a bit of a photo nerd. Nice to hear someone thinks it pays off ;)
