Established in 2011, Melissa Morgan Designs is my little dream! I'm a creative bride who discovered a talent for making beautiful bridal adornments when I needed something for my own wedding. Then I made a few more...
Actually, the story goes further back than that. To watching my mum knit and sew and make through my childhood. To the sweet tin full of sequins and coloured card and hours spent cutting and sticking. Being creative is in my blood.
I spent four years at art school then trained to be a primary school teacher (so much cutting and sticking). In my spare time I decided to dabble in a little passion, jewellery making. I did college courses and beaded workshops, quite happy as a hobbyist. It was then that I had my wedding and in the months following 'MMD' was born.
Now I work from home, in my little studio, just above the porch. I have jars and tubs and boxes full of vintage sparkle, gemstones and charms. It's a magpie heaven!
Using the finest materials I handcraft exquisite special occasion combs, headdresses and pins. My vintage designs offer brides the chance to own something seeped in history, vintage charm and an assurance that their piece will be unique. The bridal collection is a selection of vintage inspired, contemporary and classic accessories and jewellery. All these pieces are handmade and completely customisable. Many designs have been featured on top international and UK wedding blogs.
In 2013 I extended the business with a collection of fun and wearable everyday jewellery. Inspired by the latest trends and popular motifs, I create jewellery that bring a smile from within, with quirky pieces that are guaranteed to make you feel special and garner compliments from all. The jewellery is handmade with genuine gemstones, Swarovski elements and endless opportunities to personalise.
We (Mr. Morgan sometimes lends a hand) hand wrap all items with the utmost care and attention because a piece from Melissa Morgan Designs, whether a bridal headdress or foxy pair of earrings, is a treat that can make a mundane day seem truly marvellous.
