Gioia Mia in the press and in print

Hallo everyone!

It was a really fantastic start to the year for me, with my work being featured in both The Scottish Wedding Directory and in i-on magazine: Glasgow.

The new edition of The Scottish Wedding Directory was available to buy right at the start January:

In their ‘White Out’ feature they showed the beautiful ‘Fin de Siècle’ headband (page 101):

I’ve been working on designing and making some very understated, classic pieces recently.  This headband is made with a repeating pattern of delicate rhinestone floral motifs and white Swarovski pearls. It’s already proved popular with brides at wedding fairs, as it can be worn with a whole range of different styles of dresses and hairstyles: from the sleek and modern, to the Grecian-inspired, to the vintage-inspired. 

The Directory also chose to feature the ‘Paradise’ necklace and earring set (page 115):

This necklace and earring set is made from a super sparkly Swarovski rhinestone, pearl and sterling silver. It’s a timeless piece, that can be worn very easily with more elaborate dress (as shown above), or to added as a finishing touch to a more understated dress.

The earrings and necklace are available in a range of different colours and can be bought separately too.


I was delighted to have had some headbands included in January-February edition of i-on magazine: Glasgow as well:

And finally, I received a very special Christmas gift from Kristin of Struve Photography. Unbeknownst to me, she had been busy, working hard and putting together a book, including images from some of the shoots we have worked together on over the past few years. It has pride of place in my studio:

If you’d like to try any of these pieces on, or have a chat about your own ideas, you’re most welcome to! I work from a studio space in the centre of Glasgow, and can arrange daytime, evening or weekend appointments.

Or pop by and see me at the Trades Hall, Glasgow, wedding fair on Sunday 10 March 2013. There are more details on my Gioia Mia Facebook page.
