Feathers, feathers, feathers---

Feathers are just fabulous.   They are so versatile ..and can be used for any season hat making.   I had the opportunity to attend a master class  recently where we learnt so many ways that you can cut, steam, shape, cut , curl and twist feathers .An absolute feather frenzy.

Brides who don't want a white wedding

I will be attending the  Yeppoon Wedding Expo is on 9 March 2014 and I will have a range of classic and contemporary headpieces for brides and her ladies.

I am looking forward to meeting some gorgeous brides to talk about what is new for 2014.  While I love creating beautiful and classic white and ivory pieces I also know that not every bride is looking for a white wedding...

A lot of brides are not choosing to have a veil so it is important to have something interesting on the head to make sure that the whole "look" is just right for that special day.

This is a wonderful option - gold sinamay feathers on an easy to wear headband.

Not every bride dreams of having their bridesmaids with flowers in their hair.  Rockabilly brides are looking for a headpiece that is sure to stay put while they are dancing the night away.
Great for a rockabilly bridesmaid and perfect for the days after.

Not every wedding is a white wedding.  Here is a little black number made from folded ribbon and mounted on a headband and finished off with a pretty upcycled brooch.  I can see that this would be lovely for the bride that has a little black trim on her gown or equally magnificent for a bridesmaid as a pretty hair accessory.
Black folded ribbon flower on a headband.

All these pieces are available on my Etsy site

Going to the chapel and we're gonna get married

I have been working on a bridal range of headwear. Today I was able to take some photos.  Two of my gorgeous nieces helped me out by modelling some of my bridal headpieces.
