Oriental Opulence | Rhinestone bridal comb for Bee
“1920’s Shanghai meets Downtown Abbey”. It doesn’t get better than that when it comes to an inspiring and enticing wedding theme.
When I read Bee’s first email describing her wedding day vision, I nearly fell over. I was taking my dog Bear out for a walk and I couldn’t wait to get home to reply to her lovely email. I love a themed wedding and I was so excited for the opportunity to work with Bee to create her one-of-a-kind bespoke fan shaped bridal comb.
And yes, you read that correctly – fan shaped. Nothing channels old world 1920’s Shanghai glamour like a classic Art Deco fan shape embellished with sparkly jewels and ultra fine beading. I had previously crafted an Art Deco inspired fan shaped comb which featured antique style beading and pearls throughout so I felt very excited about creating a bespoke fan shaped piece for such a stylish bride.
So, her wish was my command and the creative juices started flowing. I started work designing and creating her wedding day comb with all of Bee’s wishes in mind. The sources of inspiration Bee offered could have been from a fairytale. An exquisite engagement ring featuring a beautiful diamond in a rose gold setting and a delightfully soft and romantic wedding hairstyle which this comb would soon adorn. To pull together Bee’s loves for rose gold and pearls, I decided to incorporate some beautiful soft pink freshwater pearls into her comb to create a unique and glamorous look.
I absolutely adore how her fan turned out. The silver rhinestones and beading look so beautiful with the pink pearls. It’s such a special comb which I hope she will cherish for many years to come.
