New pieces

I was asked to make a bridal fascinator with an art deco/New York feel. The brides colours are purple and lime green, so I used a vintage earring with a purple centre along with a peacock feather. The rest will be available on Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY! So come on down!

Custom bow!

No Comments »

So here’s what I’ve been struggling with! The client wanted a gigantic bow for her head, so I picked up some grosgrain ribbon from my favorite sewing place here in town (Paula’s Sewing Basket) and immediately started fretting about how I was going to do it. I spent a few hours every night figuring it out, and did the other commissions first while I mulled it over. Finally, Wednesday night I figured out how I was going to do it, and I finished it last night!

I hope she likes it!

I really need better pictures!

In related news, March of the Black Swan was snatched up, and it, along with this bow and The Black Dahlia will be making an appearance at Harvest Noir this weekend! Wheee!
