How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Just contact me with what you're looking for, and I'll build you a GORGEOUS, ONE-OF-A-KIND, CHIC & COUTURE headpiece that is TRULY one-of-a-kind. I have a gorgeous treasure of vintage and modern materials in my collection that include but are not limited to: Vintage beads and buttons in several colors, Sequins, Rhinestones, Silk, Satin & Velvet Ribbon & Fabric, Feathers in a wide variety of styles & colors, and Bits & Pieces of VINTAGE Lace, Fabric and Beaded Appliques. Just tell me your color scheme & I'll e-mail you photos of the supplies and a "mock-up" of the headband for your approval before assembling.

The sky's the limit!
