WHOS WHO - MISS MARTINI

9 April 2016

Gain insight into one of Adelaide’s most exquisite and divine bridal spaces, bursting with the ultimate collection of dazzling adornments and sparkling stones. “A fashion jewellery and accessory retail store, Miss Martini specialise in bridal and special occasion designs, as well as jewellery for everyday wear,” explains the vibrant and bubbly store owner, Maria.

At the young age of eighteen, Maria was enamoured with girly-girl materials and delightful designer crafts, “Through a love of fashion I began making my own jewellery and clothing while studying an Arts Degree at university,” explains Maria. “Whilst out on the town I would wear original designs I had pieced together and receive regular compliments and interest on where they could be purchased.”

Creative direction and an exceptional flair for design opened multiple doors for the wonderful Adelaide entrepreneur, who soon began approaching fashion stores to build interest in her fabulous pieces. “A local clothing store was my first stop. With a Tupperware box full of jewellery I went inside to show my designs. I came out with my first Adelaide stockist and then went on to supply stores Australia wide and in New Zealand under my label Calypso Designs.”

Maria was extremely determined to establish an artistic space she could express her personality and present her masterful creations. “As my little jewellery making business started to grow, and the kitchen table was no longer big enough, I decided that I needed a workshop and retail space that I could set up and sell my designs. This is how Miss Martini was born.”

With a keen eye for fashion-forward styles and a constant desire to fulfil customer requests, Maria now showcases an extensive range of stunning necklaces, rings, bracelets, fascinators, clutches and more across Miss Martini’s shelves. Whilst offering precious stones and popular labels, such as Australia’s own ‘Samantha Wills’ and ‘Peter Lang’, the trendy city-side store conveniently caters to the bride, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, flower girl and wedding guests.

Maria tributes her loved ones for her continual success, “My family, especially my mother, have contributed immensely to the growth of Miss Martini and are always there to lend a helping hand.”

Inspiration...

There are many mornings I wake up with a new and exciting idea. I often take this thought to a family dinner and we will continue to throw different ideas around. I am also inspired everyday by the new brides I have the pleasure of meeting, assisting and styling as they piece together the perfect jewellery and accessories for their special day.

Most proud of...

Opening the store at only twenty years of age and successfully managing, maintaining and growing my own business for over ten years.

One thing about yourself people don’t know...

I have an Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design and Pattern Making.

The next big challenge...

To expand Miss Martini and our jewellery and accessory ranges and develop our brand new online boutique.

If I wasn’t in the industry I would be...

A professional traveller. I absolutely love to getaway and explore the world; Europe is one of my favourite destinations!

Best compliment...

All the beautiful brides who visit Miss Martini are so thankful and appreciative for the assistance they receive in order to find the perfect accessories. I can see the happiness on their faces and this makes my work incredibly rewarding!

miss martini jewellery shop - brides of adelaide

A typical day at work...

I could be assisting a bride-to-be as she looks for a beautiful crystal hairpiece, organising photo shoots for our new online boutique, merchandising recent product arrivals, or attending buying appointments to find new exquisite designs.

First thing I do when I get to work...

I check my diary to make sure I am up to date with what is happening for the day. Next I follow up on any customer orders and enquiries.

Favourite place to hang out...

I love strolling along Grange Beach in the summertime. All the restaurants and bars in and around Peel Street are also great for a quiet drink with friends.

When I am not at work you will find me...

At the beach in summer and during winter, I am baking in my kitchen. Apple Pie is my specialty!

A song always in my head...

‘Golden Years’ by David Bowie is one of my favourites.

My wardrobe can’t live without...

EVERYTHING! Especially my accessories; I cannot live without all my accessories!

Top of the shopping list...

A swimming pool; it is on my ‘dream list’ at the moment.

Favourite place to shop and eat in Adelaide...

I love to dine at Star of Siam and shop along King William Road.

miss martini jewellery shop - brides of adelaidemiss martini jewellery shop - brides of adelaide

My idea of a good time...

Hanging out with friends, having dinner, drinks and most importantly, plenty of laughs.

What makes you laugh?

Anything and everything - I giggle very easily.

Which five words best describe you?

Happy, creative, fashionable, easy-going and always smiling.

Red wine or champagne?

I am a cocktail girl through and through. Serve me up a Mojito any day!

Favourite quote...

Live this moment and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.

DISPOSABLE CAMERAS - WEDDING 101

1 December 2014

Provide your guests with hours of entertainment by supplying disposable cameras! Not only will guests interact with one other, you will also be left with some incredible and priceless snaps! Your photographer is there to capture the day in a professional light but imagine your nephew with cake on his face or your grandma's accidental selfie as she tries to figure out how it works and your bridesmaid caught in the bathroom mirror as she touches up that ruby red lippy... We can just picture it, now that would make for a fun photo album to flick through.




To really get your guests involved provide an 'I SPY' list... guests need to take pics of certain things. It's a good time to think of snaps you'd love to have as keepsakes and include these on the list.




Either have a basket full of disposable cameras as your guests enter the wedding ceremony, place them on their chair or place setting or alternatively have them arranged on high-bars and tables around the venue.

SOMETHING BORROWED INSPO

27 November 2014

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue... Sharing is caring and today we focus on borrowing that special something for you wedding. The diy safety pin holding a few of your small choices, is a traditional choice. These elements, however, do not have to be physically worn on your wedding day.

We think these ideas are a beautiful way to get creative, while still playing on old traditions for your big day. Traditional but sweet, fix your parents and grandparents wedding rings onto your bridal bouquet.



Borrow a fashion piece from your mother or grandmother... We think this broach, as a statement jewel, is a gorgeous way to have something borrowed close to you. Alternatively, wear a piece of jewellery in which you have borrowed from something who is special to you.



A really sentimental choice is to invorporate some flowers from  your grandmothers, or mum garden into your bridal bouquet. Can you image how flattered they would be!

What about using your parents wedding song as your own? This is bound to get some eyes tearing... we think this is such a beautiful idea and old school songs are some of the best and most romantic.

Perhaps you are lucky enough to actually have a wedding or engagement ring which is a family heirloom? In which case you have got this tradition down-pat!

CARD HOLDERS

10 November 2014

Card holders are a detrimental aspect of any wedding... they all need one. It can be a fun, quirky or understated area for guests to leave cards and pressies for the bride and groom.

Here are some gorgeous ideas in which you can apply to any particular wedding theme... from modern to traditional and alternative.



Vintage props are cute, eye catching elements and can often be found in op-shops or even around the home! We love suit cases, lanters, rustic tins, guitar cases and bridcages.



Purchase or print and cut out text - 'CARDS' or 'CARDS & GIFTS', so guests clearly know where to put their goodies. Choose a font, colour and method of hanging to suit your wedding theme, creating a polished and professional look.

BRIDAL NAIL ART

4 November 2014

Make your day glamorous and polished, right down to your nails, (excuse the pun.) Nail art is so in at the moment, and it is surprisingly easier than it looks! If you dare; grab some tools and get practicing. Or opt for the pamper treatment, pin some snaps and print to take your favs to your nail salon - think about relating it to wedding themes, colour palettes and dress textures.



Select a neutral nail with elegant art like floral and shine. Keeping the nail as natural as possible and subtly using white to add patterns and textures will create a feminine look.



If you're feeling daring add colour - diamantes and beads create a 2 dimensional, fun finish!

SPARKLER SEND OFF

13 October 2014

There is something so whimsical, special, fun and magical about sparklers. Perhaps because they are reminiscent of Tinkerbell's wand or because mum only brought them out of special birthdays.

Avoid the mess and retain your beautiful hair, toss the confetti and rice to the side and provide sparklers for your send of. We think they make for the most fabulous pics too...

“Gone are the days when ‘bridal’ meant wearing structured princess dresses, diamond studs and tiaras or a string of Grandma’s pearls. Style defines each of us on a daily basis and your wedding day should be no different.” - Grace Loves Lace.

FITS LIKE A GLOVE

5 July 2013

brides of adelaide magazine - wedding gloves - wedding fashion


Retro has been revamped in the form of uber-glamorous gloves, the perfect addition to your bridal outfit. Not so vintage anymore, these designs are opulent, fashion-forward and would add a touch of 'wow-factor' to your wedding day style. They're feminine and the cover up of skin is half-glamorous, half-sexy!

WEDDING BELLS AND PEARLS

4 June 2013

brides of adelaide magazine - pearl wedding -

Wedding bells and luxurious pearls - what more could a girl wish for? Pearls are quickly making their way back into the limelight and we're blaming it on the world's sudden infatuation with the Gatsby era (thanks to Baz Luhrmann's movie adaption of the infamous novel). The movie, which was only released a few days ago, has sent the world into a frenzy as they re-live the glamour and style of the roaring 1920s. If you haven't heard already, our beloved Tiffany & Co have teamed up with Baz's wife, costume designer Catherine Martin, to create the stunning jewellery collection for the film. Pearls are evident everywhere you look, whether it's to the 1920s for inspiration or to 2013 trends.

Pearls are one of the most classic pieces of jewellery, their presence reminds the wearer of old-world glamour and effortlessly sophisticated style. Let your wedding decor reflect the inherent elegance of a string of pearls. Ultra-feminine, they look dainty and pretty with pastel hues and delicate lace fabrics.

Wrap pearls around a simple bouquet to bring the styling together with the natural elements. Understated elegance is all that is required when matching your decor to the pearls. A shine of silver, rustic wood and fresh flowers are beautiful, classic additions that will complement the pearls rather than detract from them.
