Inspired as a child by her Grandma's love of Jewellery, Emma has had a long standing love affair with anything that sparkles.
Her Grandma was also handy with
a needle and thread, teaching
Emma how to sew from an early
age and thus setting her firmly on
a creative path.
These childhood passions went onto shape Emmas life. She went on to study Surface pattern at Huddersfield University where she also completed a years work placement at Tiger Print cards who design stationary for Marks and Spencer's, this lead to a design job offer on graduating.
She has worked within the Card and stationary industry for 11 years now, both designing and managing cards and stationary ranges for Sainsbury’s, Marks and Spencer, John Lewis, Tesco's and Oxfam amongst others.
As well as progressing her fantastic career in card design Emma also continued to pursue her love of all that glitters, taking on numerous successful commissions in her own time, unique jewellery and accessories.
In 2004 Emma funded her round the world trip by making over 900 intricate bespoke charm bracelets which she sold just by word of mouth to family & friends, this was before the days of Twitter and Facebook!
When planning her own romantic Italian wedding Emma wanted to incorporate some of the vintage jewellery that she had
inherited, as a way to pay tribute to her beloved Grandma.
From her home studio in the heart of Derbyshire,
Emma Isaacs creates her exquisite headpieces by recycling antique gems and precious family heirlooms, magically transforming them into beautiful
bespoke pieces, individually tailored to match
each brides requirements.
We actually met when we were babies although we only found this out when I dug out a local newspaper clipping of me at a baby group for a baby shower. I said ‘Luke guess which baby I am?” He replied I don’t know but that baby there is me! We were sat 2 babies apart! He was dressed as a clown (very fitting!) and we still don’t know what my mum dressed me as!
We didn’t go to the same school and at 18 I had left Derby for Leeds and Luke for France, so the chances were pretty slim!
Luke proposed on Ilkley moor on his 30th birthday… I had spent months planning a surprise party for him and the whole time the surprise was on me! He asked my mum if he could use my dad’s wedding ring as he is no longer with us to ask.
Of course this made my mum cry and me (Although I still said no for a sneaky joke!)
We got married at Scaliger castle in Lake Garda, Italy. Luke’s family are Italian and Malcesine was a special holiday memory for me and my family so it seemed perfect.
We had close family and friends come with us to help celebrate have a look here…..
MEET LUKE & EMMA
