HELLO & WELCOME,
My name is Maria and I am a creative director & founder of MARIA JAMES (previously known as FLORAS BELL).
I help women all over the world to look and feel exceptional on their wedding day by designing and hand-making exquisite headpieces accentuating women's beauty and femininity.
My designs capture and preserve natures enduring charm of clean lines. Blossoming trees, fields and woodlands whispering "beauty" have a profound impact on my aesthetic values.
My clients have been featured in Cosmopolitan, Stylist UK, Daily Mail UK, Wedding, Bridestory, Wedding Flowers, NDTV, Hollywood reporter, Huffington Post, Metro UK etc.
I am really pleased to welcome you on my website and looking forward to making something unique for your special occasion.
"Maria made myself and my bridesmaids head pieces for my wedding day and I have got to say they were just beautiful. Handcrafted to perfection, classy, elegant and unique. I had so many comments about them. They were presented in a beautiful box and will make a very special keepsake that could be worn again. I highly recommend Floras bell especially on the quality of the head pieces".
"Beautiful, intricate and elegant designs, and an absolute pleasure working with Maria. I would highly recommend!"
"Maria's craftsmanship of her headpieces are truely exquisite and her customer service is exceptional. From the initial order to the final delivery of the neatly packaged crown - she discusses your vision, brings it to life and leaves you feeling magical. Would highly recommend to all women wanting that extra special sparkle at your next event".
"Maria’s headpieces are divine! Quality made, unique designs, plus friendly service! What more could you want? Ohh and they’re local! I love my headband so much I don’t wait for a special occasion to wear it. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough!".
"Maria James' creative process is one I trust and admire. There has not been one piece of her work that I have not loved! To be honest, I have seen nothing like it in the market, her pieces in themselves speak volumes when given as a gift.
I have purchased 3+ bespoke pieces as birthday gifts for my dearest friends to date. Each one was unique and made to fit personality, spirit and the occasion".
