ABOUT JAMIE’S CROWN
Event designer Taylor Baxter Olivares contacted Janie, owner and designer of The Lucky Sixpence to create the crown featured in this editorial. Janie’s designs often include vintage elements and luxurious details.
For her custom creations, like the featured crown, Janie works closely with her clients to capture their vision. After speaking with the client and reviewing their inspiration photos, Janie begins work. “I come up with a design, sketch it out and then look for elements that could work in making the piece,” she says. “In this case a bronze tone was really important along with natural organic elements so I selected some bronze leaf shapes and then gave them a colour treatment to lift the matte bronze to one of a warmer golden glow. I love to add luxury details to elevate my pieces so in this case I used warm honey coloured crystal pearls along the base.”
The table design incorporated Vintage French Country ladder back chairs with rush seats from Sweetheart Rentals and a gauze table runner by SnassyCrafter.
Brilliant blooms from Botanica Wholesale Florist, arranged by Violeta’s add a splash of color the design.
