Crown and Glory Review
Recently the lovely Sophie, who runs Crown & Glory, kindly offered to send me one of her handmade hair accessories to feature & review. You should all know by now how much I love hair accessories, & am rarely seen without a headbow, so I happily said yes. Crown & Glory sells all sorts of accessories, from garlands to fascinators, from combs to hair clips & more!
"Crown & Glory was born in 2011 from Photographic Art graduate Sophie King's absolute obsession with hair accessories. From whimsical floral garlands to rockabilly pin up sets and everything in between, Crown and Glory Hair Accessories will add that finishing touch to every outfit. Clients are fully encouraged to take part in the design process - if you have a specific colour-way or attachment in mind Crown and Glory will be delighted to customise your order to your every whim. Each piece is lovingly handmade by Sophie herself, and carefully packaged and giftwrapped"
I couldn't make a decision on which item I liked best, they were all so lovely, so Sophie offered to make me a one of a kind garland in deep pinks & purples. Sophie's Etsy shop houses all her one of a kind items. Do also check out the Crown & Glory blog, Facebook, & Twitter, to keep up to date on all the latest news and/or competitions!
As you can see, the garland she made me is very pretty! I love hair garlands anyway, but this is definitely the most well made of all of the ones I own. The other ones I have are from Primark, or handmade by myself, haha! I love the ribbon tie detail at the back too, so this will fit any size head. It even has little crystal accents dotted on the flowers, which is a lovely finishing touch.
Rating - 10/10
I love supporting indie/handmade, so I will definitely be returning to Crown & Glory in the future, as their prices are very reasonable, & quality amazing!
