At Ledbelly, we made a few exciting changes over the summer! We moved from our downtown location to East, Austin where we became a home-based business and quickly fell in love with our new handcrafted pieces. Although it's a bit painful, all clothing has been reduced to $30 until the end of the year. It seems making bridal accessories may have resulted from wedding planning during the years of 2008 to 2013 but nevertheless, we are super pleased to offer our these products and other vintage accessories online and at Second Summer Bride.

On August 19, 2014, we had the pleasure of spending the evening at Lone Oak Barn in Round Rock, Texas to portray a woman mourning her long lost husband in 1946. This wonderful work of art and idea was created by Josh Baker of Azulox Photography, LLC and beautiful supermodel Cassandra Hierholzer.

Vintage brooches can be used in variety of ways and at Ledbelly, we love the idea of accessorizing a wedding and/or bridal party with brooches. These are pieces of your wedding that people will remember and keep for a lifetime.
Today, we would like to share a few ideas to help design a beautiful vintage wedding.
Brooch Hair Combs
At Ledbelly, we carry vintage brooches that have been repurposed as hair combs. Visit our store online or see some of these great pieces at Second Summer Bride in Austin, TX. Add a sparkle to your hairdo with a ravishing rhinestone brooch.
We follow and very much admire the designs of Cultivar from Portland, Oregon. This shabby chic bouquet is perfect. We just love blush pink, fabric flowers surrounded with crystals.
Karin van Rijn from the Netherlands hand makes corsages and bridesmaids bracelets out of vintage brooches. These are so neat and can be worn at any time!
Brooch boutonnieres don't have to be elaborate. Using a simple floral brooch is unique and a special statement for each groomsman. At Ledbelly, we carry a variety of floral and animal brooches perfect for weddings.
Brooch Centerpieces, Place Card Holders, etc.
Rebecca Melhus from Canada creates a variety of bridal pieces. We particularly treasure her fabric flower and brooch centerpieces. Imagine adding gold tone place cards, antique picture frames, and votive candles throughout....so romantic.
Since May 2014, we started creating vintage accessories out of brooches and clip-on earrings. We are ecstatic to sell these online and some of our bridal piecese at Second Summer Bride.
Today, we introduced new handmade locket necklaces made from vintage clip-on earrings. These are our favorite so far as we wanted to extend our creations and see where it goes from here!
It's such a pleasure to hand make these items for vintage vixens and unique individuals who cherish accessories as much as we do. Here's a preview of our recent clip-on creations (click on image for shop link).
