The idea for The Lucky Sixpence came about in 2010, after Janie had scoured the shops and couldn’t find any hair accessories for her wedding day.

If you have an idea of a piece you would like, Janie can take inspiration from your dress or shoes, or possibly incorporate a cherished item that you may not want to wear as it is, but turn it into something you will love!
