This week, we have another Artisan to share with you, Suzy Uyechi, who has been creating handmade bridal bouquets and bridal accessories for the last number of years. She uses a variety of silk materials in her creations, crafted using millinery techniques from olden times. Very unique!
What is your business name?
My business name s simply “Suzy Uyechi”
What do you create?
I am constantly making something, but have been making handmade wedding bouquets and accessories for the last 6 or 7 years. In the last couple of years, I have also begun to make flowers from 100% silk fabrics like dupioni, silk velvet, silk chiffon and other gorgeous silks. I use very old millinery techniques that were used in the old days. Some things I make include, fabric flower bridal bouquets, bridesmaid bouquets, hair pieces, belts/sashes, corsages, boutonnieres, and cake flowers.
Why did you start your business and how did you choose what to make?
My business started after I had been asked several times to help plan or set up for the weddings of various friends. I started noticing handmade things that I could make myself, It sort of gradually transitioned into making flowers and bouquets.
If there’s one thing you’d love your customers to know about you, what would that be?
Most of my customers after working with me realize that I have an eye for detail and that I enjoy making flowers. I really want to make each bride super happy with the things I make for her. Wedding day is a big day, and I love sharing a small part of it.
