Aisling Nelson, the jewellery and hair accessories designer behind Rangoli recently celebrated ten years in business. Renowned for her elegant and delicate creations, Aisling is equally regarded for the personal service that she offers her clients. Her one-to-one appointments allow time to discuss the style of the gown, as well as details such as hairstyles and possible wedding themes. All of these details are taken into account when designing the perfect accessories to complement the chosen gown.


Aisling has started writing a Rangoli Jewellery blog so that she can share some of her interesting experiences and inspiration with her customers. Below, she shares one of her posts -


“Recently I took on a special commission to embellish a pair of shoes for a client to complement her beautiful Tyrell and Brennan wedding gown.


Bronwyn had found a pair of shoes with a shape and style that were almost perfect for her dress. However they had been decorated with beading and sequins that were too fussy. As well as this, the beading colours were the wrong tones for the fabric of the dress.


The shoes were unusual, in that the upper parts were made from a fine gauze. This meant that I could un-stitch the original beading. It was also a suitable material for me to secure beadwork onto as normally a leather shoe is too tough to be able to get a needle through.


These shoes became a labour of love – let’s just say that I now know why most ‘designer’ shoes are made in places like China where labour hours are much cheaper. But I took the job on as it was challenging and fun. I had already designed a crochet headpiece and matching necklace to match the lace of Bronwyn’s gown so I used the same Swarovski crystal and pearls to embellish the shoes. The shoes were the final and very glamorous finishing touch to her gorgeous look.”
