International order to Italy

Through the medium of social media and more specifically Facebook, I received a commission to create a bride's tiara.  The bride to be had befriended me on Facebook and came from Salerno in Italy.  She contacted me via Facebook Chat and (in Italian) explained that she wished to order a bespoke headpiece for her wedding day. She chose the 'Ava' headpiece with a customised twist of amber coloured Swarovski Elements (c) crystals.

Using Google translate I was able to communicate in Italian too!  The headpiece was created and finally posted off in plenty of time.

Here I am in my studio with a variety of jewellery on display.  This is just a sample of what I make - a commissioned design will be unique to you - whether a bridal tiara or a sterling silver pendant.
