Bentley and Skinner Jewellery

I’ve been away having my wisdom teeth out, working and all sorts so there’s a few things i haven’t updated. Here goes another blog…

Earlier this month i got asked to style some hair for Bentley and Skinner Jewellers of Bond Street. Our model cancelled at the last minute, extraordinarily the photographer, Aliona, was a model and as you can see is incredibley beautiful. She stepped in and some how managed to model and also take her own self portrait, with a little help from her assistant.

All the jewellery is antique, and the main focus was on the tiara. We used images of Audrey Hepburn as a reference. It’s a french pleat at the back, and i concentrated on keeping it clean, and with a little height at the back for the tiara to have a solid base, but not too much so we could keep it modern and really let the jewellery take center stage.

This image will be used to market the store, it will be the first time they’ve used a model to promote themselves too. They were wonderful to work with and hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to do more together in the future.
