Custom hat

No Comments »

One of my coworkers requested a custom hat with a vintage, retro feel. I drew a quick concept sketch for her and realized we were on the same page. I sat down to work on the project on the weekend, and it turned out exactly like I had in mind. I brought it to work today to show her and she loves it! I have to make one little adjustment (addition of a bendy clip) but otherwise I’m thrilled with it!

Here are some not-so-good pictures. I’ll try to get some better, modeled photos tonight.

I was commissioned to do two headband pieces!

Lady of the Valley, $20:

One side with orchids, vintage jewelry and feathers for leaves


The other side with rhinestones and vintage jewelry


Call of the Calla, $10

One side with calla lilies


The other side with rose and woodland accents, and antique brass furniture nail


I also made these hair fans with rhinestones and vintage jewelry.

March of the Black Swan, $20


March of the White Swan, $20
