Nicola created the most beautiful hair piece for my wedding. I loved all our meetings - we both seemed to compliment what each other wanted! She made a headband with exquisite pearl and rose gold detail with a bird cage veil attached. I had so many comments on it, I absolutely love it and will treasure it for the rest of my life!Emma Kelly
For my wedding at Victoria Baths, Nicola made me a bespoke birdcage veil and hair accessory featuring a Manchester Bee and using my Nana's pearls. I couldn't have been happier with the end result and loved that I had something so personal to wear on the day and treasure forever. I couldn't recommend Silver Sixpence enough! Thank you.Helen Ankers
Just want to say a massive thank you for all of your hard work on the beautiful intricate beading pieces you made for my dress. It was a pleasure to collaborate with you to design the ideas and pick the beads and materials, and you executed them to perfection! Loved each piece and I got so many compliments on the beading.
Thanks a million!Lisa
