"I adore designing bridal accessories for wedding dresses." says Basia Zarzycka.
Bridal accessories can take as much time to choose as deciding which wedding gown you are going to wear! Creating the final aesthetic touches to your trousseaux using beautiful accessories and jewellery is very exciting, and I enjoy enormously, making and designing all types of unique bridal accessories imaginable. I also design an array of bridal hair accessories, tiaras, diadems, and floral garlands that are woven and wired with intricately incorporated crystal confections and lace, to be worn woven into the hair.
Designed with Love and Excitement by Basia
The pleasure of knowing that I have produced unique bridal accessories such as a special beautiful tiara or bridal hair comb that has been commissioned for a bride’s special day, her wedding day, thrills me to bits. I get so excited collecting and preparing my materials and components for days. From pearls and Swarovski crystals, to vintage flower components, and more, I instinctively know when I have the right materials to make the piece. For more than 30 years, I have made and designed tiaras and headdresses for brides and many others including many guests to Elton John’s legendary Tiara Parties.
If my moment of inspiration is at 3.00am in the morning, that is when I will make a tiara! I have produced my tiaras in the oddest times and in the strangest of places. I do not know how many tiaras I have made over the years, but it is definitely too many to count. However, I do know one thing. I am passionate and love making them and all unique bridal accessories for my special brides.
Collections, Designs, and Accessory Pieces
Over the years, I have collected the most amazing Napoleonic tiaras, Victorian wax orange blossom headdresses, Victorian fans, gloves, handbags and parasols for a vintage bride. Unique bridal accessories encompasses my imagination, and I also make and design shawls, posies, jewellery, hair accessories, silk headdresses, and basically anything a bride desires for her big day!
Feminine or futuristic, fun or simple, shabby chic or steam punk, limited-edition, elegant and timeless are all silhouettes that are part of my collection..........and are romantic and unique looks that I love to make.
I collect old vintage necklaces, Victorian paste, baroque pearls, Swarovski crystals, old watch parts, petals and flowers to create unusual hair accessories, as well as sourcing the finest materials including semi-precious stones, crystals and pearls from all over the world.
Using the eclectic combination of old and new, I am able to craft each piece, using tools over a hundred years old and let my imagination create magical one off hair jewellery and ornaments. For me the most perfect combination of specialist skills, hand -making each and every piece to the highest standard of craftsmanship. I am innovative in spirit and I always try to perfect and combine the celebration of colour and beautiful workmanship and ultimately create original, desirable unique bridal accessories."
