Today, I am delighted to share with you the work of Carrie Yeo , and her gorgeous ranges of designer jewellery.
Here she tells us about her wonderful business.
When and why did you start your business ?
"I started my business Carrie Yeo in February 2008.
I had worked for several years in fashion buying after I had finished university, and whilst I enjoyed my job it was not as creative as I had hoped, and I wanted to get back to the creative days of my design degree.
I had learnt some jewellery making skills, and had always used Swarovski crystals.
In my Graduate fashion week show I used over 5000 of them, so maybe this was a sign of things to come!"
Tell us about your collections
"Our collections are divided into themes to help you co-ordinate your jewellery with the overall theme of your wedding.
The Classic Bride collections are ideal for those having a traditional wedding, the Beach Bride collections are ideal for destination weddings, and the Crown Jewels collections utilise bright colours for a truly unique look, and the Mid-Summer Night's Dreams collections take inspiration from ethereal themes."
"Brides who want to be truly unique or perhaps have something specific in mind, can use our Bespoke Design Service to design something completely to their tastes."
What inspires you ?
I love to mix colours and materials, and take my inspiration from everything that I see, whether it be a vintage piece from the 1920's, a contemporary piece of art, or simply something that I see whilst walking through London; it all goes into my work."
What Drives you ?
"Whether working with Brides or celebrity clients, my passion for design drives me. I have always loved to create beautiful things, for myself and other people. I love especially love working in the wedding industry as designing for Brides to be is so rewarding. We like to ensure that we listen to Brides and ensure that our work is personal and meaningful to them. It's a great honour to be involved with the one of the most important days in a person's life and it gives me great pleasure to have contributed to their special day."
What are your plans for the future ?
"We will continue to grow our business, and add new collections every year.
We have a few big plans up our sleeve for the end of 2010, but I don’t want to jinx anything so you will just have to watch this space !"
I love the diversity of Carries designs, from the fun and flirty, to the boho chic, to the delicate, and the uber glamourous.
There is something to suit any bride.
I particularly love the Gold Butterfly Headband, its delicate flowers, and its lovely green hues remind me of a spring garden, and the many other fabulous testimonials agree that Carrie's work is a breathtaking.
