About Vintage Taylor Maid

Vintage Taylor Maid is a journey shared by myself and my daughter Katherine. The name of our shop is a reflection of the influence of past eras as well as encompassing our family name.

It all began in the summer of 2015 and a chance remark by my cousin set me off in the direction of headdresses. Until that time I had tried my hand at up-cycling furniture and jewellery-making but without finding my niche. I now spend what spare time I have creating new designs for hair accessories and jewellery, particularly with brides in mind. These designs I like to think of as being influenced by past eras but with a modern twist. We specialise in bespoke hair accessories: tiaras, hair wreaths, vines, combs, decorative pins and more. Katherine focuses on personalised items such as our popular cake toppers and wall art.

We both live within easy reach of central London with its numerous galleries and exhibitions providing a rich source of inspiration for our designs.

Our beaded items are largely made by recycling both vintage and modern jewellery and I am always on the lookout for unusual beads. My favourite part of the process, once I have decided upon the design, is playing with bead and wire combinations. Most of the beaded items I make are 'one-of-a-kind'. However, should you require multiple items I am often able to oblige, or make similar items that 'mix and match'.
All pieces are hand-crafted and, consequently, may have minor anomalies, which will, hopefully, only add to their charm.
