Claire Hill Designs - run by me, Claire Hill - is based in Cardiff and specialises in jewellery and bridal accessories.
Let’s talk jewellery first. Frustrated by the high street offerings, and as a way of relaxing from my day job in television, I started to learn to make jewellery. I make earrings and necklaces that I would love to wear, and wear, and wear. I’m bored of keeping up with the jewellery trends so want pieces I can keep coming back to and wear with anything. And my customers seem to agree with me. So I sell, and make, effortlessly beautiful accessories which are timeless, playful and with a hint of luxury, but without the price tag to match. My online store is fully stocked with my latest ranges and if you are looking for a bricks and mortar place to check out my work please see my stockists.
But what about the bridal you say? Since 2012 I have been making bridal veils, headpieces and sashes for the award-winning Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique in Penarth. Proudly, my creations have been the finishing touch to countless brides on their special day. Since then I have developed my professional skills in millinery, French and Japanese silk flower making and wire wrapping to launch a range of hats, headpieces and silk floral hair vines. My ranges are available ready to wear or bespoke. If you would like a consultation please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d love to create something special for you.
My millinery skills mean I am also perfectly placed to create hair accessories for the whole wedding party or even a big day out at the races.
I might be a one-woman band, that doesn’t mean you get a lesser service. I am passionate about customer service so am always on hand to answer your queries, make bespoke changes to your orders, and, everything comes gift-wrapped. So whether you are buying a present for a loved one or a treat for yourself I will endeavour to make it a special experience.
