Brow Band for West Lothian Bride
Joanna commissioned me to create this beautiful brow band headpiece for her wedding day in Mexico.
I adored working on this brow band for Joanna – not just because it’s simply gorgeous, but also because Joanna is fairly local to me, also living and working in the West Lothian area. It’s a real joy creating items of headwear for ladies who live locally! And even more exciting that it ended up being worn to her wedding in Mexico.
This brow band has even more reasons to be classed as extra special. Because it was made to order, Joanna was able to choose the components she liked best. Firstly, we opted to incorporate Joanna’s Granny’s and Great Granny’s pearls into the brow band headpiece, ensuring it would be something treasured for generations.
The antique, heirloom pearls were then added to with some high quality Swarovski pearls and crystal cup chain detailing, providing a draped effect to the brow band headpiece.
As a focal point, the right hand side of the brow band features a large silver brooch, studded with clear Swarovski crystals and with further draping using the antique pearls. For the left hand side of the brow band, we chose to keep things more simple, simply weaving in a combination of pearls and crystals over the hair comb section.
Having caught up with Joanna since she returned to West Lothian, it sounds as though her and her now husband John had the most amazing time in Mexico! Huge congratulations to you both! You look amazing!
