Specialising in embroidery, beadwork and jewellery design, inspired by two millennia and featuring the latest fashion colours!
We offer traditional embroidery and needlework in classic and contemporary colours.
Working with precious metals, silks, Swarovski® crystals, Bohemian and Venetian glass and gemstones, we proudly produce designs taken from historical portraits and old-time movies, giving them a modern twist by offering them in this season's colours, with trend forecasts by Pantone® and the latest Swarovski® colours and innovations.
Keeping abreast of the fashion scene and the tones anticipated for the coming seasons, we can produce items now which will be in vogue next year.
We also offer designs in classic colours in keeping with re-enactment requirements.
