Sparkley Jem

Pink Silk Mini Top Hat

Teeny Floral Chintz Mini Top Hat

Hard to resist these funky mini top hats from designer, Jema Hewitt. With over 20 years experience in the film, bridal, television, museum and theatre costuming business, her style is polished original.

Jema is a published author in jewellery design and regular contributor to crafts and bridal magazines, she lectures at universities around the United Kingdom and runs the Kindred Spirits workshops courses. Her corsetry designs for the burlesque and gothic community were spotted by friends and brides wanting something unusual, and so Kindred Spirits Bridal-Originals was born!

Her passion for sparkles led her to Tiara creation and jewellery design, and from there to writing about them. Some of her published work includes "Complete Beading" and most recently "Tiaras and Bridal jewellery"
