My name is Caroline and I am the owner and sole designer of Caroline's Combs ... the home of beautiful, unique headpieces. These are made to your requirements from my home studio in Shropshire. I started my business in 2009 when I retired from my job as a trainer in a large Japanese Manufacturing establishment. After volunteering in a charity bridal shop (Barnardos) I discovered I had the knack of being able to make beautiful headpieces from the broken tiaras that were donated to us. Sadly the shop closed but my love of creating didnt and I set up a page on facebook, a shop on Etsy and attended a few wedding fayres and helped more than 300 brides from all over the World achieve their dreams.
Each piece I create is lovingly made with full input from the you, the customer and bride to be. Customers can choose all their own elements from my huge stock of elements on their first consultation ( which takes place in my home) and are fully involved with the design of their crowning glory.. right through the design process, creation and the final finishing details. Clients living too far to visit are contacted via phone, email, facetime, facebook messaging or Skype so they feel comfortable making their choices and friendly chat enables me to determine your requirements and ensures you get exactly what you are after.
I specialises in vintage styling using cherished family jewellery, restyling Mum's headpiece from years gone by, fine hand beading on French lace and Kanzashi ( a form of Origami using the finest bridal fabrics). I can match the beading on your dress, replicate beading patterns and include your colour theme if required using the full range of Swarovski Crystals. Using the best materials sourced from all over the World ensures your headpiece will be totally unique to you and cherished for years to come.
