Our Story

You’re a bride with specific taste and a heart for special stories and unique details that speak to your love story and your personality. You’re a Tilly-Minx Bride.

Welcome to Tilly-Minx Vintage. Here, it’s about so much more than simple jewelry creation. We focus on creating beloved, intricate, hand-made pieces that reflect your personality, hold a precious story, and become the heirloom you are giddy to pass down for generations.

When I started Tilly-Minx Vintage, I had two major goals in mind: to create one-of-a-kind pieces that make each client’s eyes light up, and to help bring an added element of joy to my clients’ life by providing them with something special, something they have seen from start to finish, something they have helped create simply by being the wonderful women they are.

Inspiration for my pieces comes from everywhere, but most notably it comes from understanding and getting to know each of my girls. It’s important to me that your custom-made piece reflects your heart, your style, and your personality.

Pieces can start with any number of things. It could be a forgotten gem, Grandmother’s favorite brooch, or an unexpected find at the local antique fair. Sometimes, you haven’t yet found that perfect cornerstone for your Tilly-Minx piece, but you know you want a custom piece and that vintage makes your heart beat faster. If this is you, don’t worry. I’ve got a collection for you to look through as well. Just as my brides are inspired by all things vintage, I, too, light up when surrounded by intricate, beautiful vintage that tells a story.

Each and every piece we make at Tilly-Minx is more than a pretty accessory. It’s a journey from a one-loved jewel with the glamour of the past, morphed into something new combined with a fashion conscious twist – the past, present, and future all in one amazing, inspired-by-YOU design.

If you want to learn about the process from start to finish, you can read all about it here [hyperlink to process page would go there], and if you have a specific style in mind, I am ready to source it to create your personalised collection, just give me a ring [link to contact page or email address would go here].

I’m committed to quality, detail, and an inspiring, creative, comfortable experience for you. But, of course I don’t expect you to just take my word for it. Here’s what some of my recent clients have said of working with me:

"I felt like a little girl at Christmas when trying on her beautiful creations!!! I could not have asked for a better experience or hair piece for my big day! I shall definitely be visiting Annette in the future!!!" Hannah (Solihull)

"I'm not creative at all but somehow she extracted all the info needed from me to make me the most perfect pieces." Lucy (Wiltshire)

“Annette has a natural talent to create jaw dropping pieces of art in jewellery, along with a kind heart and outstanding service.” Kay (Hereford)

“Annette’s originality, individuality, inspiration and craftsmanship was a huge surprise during the design and creation process. She kept me involved at all stages and the end product was even more beautiful than the photographs. I was so impressed that I commissioned a brooch for my mother – it’s absolutely beautiful”  Sian (Bristol)
