Beautiful Combs

Quick share!
So I have been packing and trying to get myself ready to move.
I am TRYING to not let myself get all stressed out!
I finally finished a few combs that I wanted to share.
I think they are A LOT prettier in person.
...one of these days I just HAVE to get my photo skills up to par!
I should have these available in my shop soon!
I actually painted the brass leaf base with a gorgeous matte silver metallic paint and wire wrapped all the Swarovski crystals and Rhinestones on anti-tarnish silver wire. They REALLY SPARKLE in person!

The Butterflies are Back!

Every year I say It's the last year I make my butterflies...8 years later... ya think I would just say I'll make them again next Summer!
They take a decent amount of time to put all the little crystals on them...and it's not like I put a couple big ones here and there. I actually make a beautiful design on each and am generous with the application! So, these would retail for twice the amount I sell them for easily I KNOW. The crap I have seen being made over the years that are similar are WAY more expensive and not nearly as nice as mine.
With that said, here are my recent Summer additions! I'm not going to be making many of them since I focus on my other pieces so if you like one you better grab it!

Emerald Butterfly

Fluttering Beauties

I forgot I hadn't shared these pieces that I listed.
I was feeling inspired with the platinum colored silk and wanted to do something a little more Elegant fantasy based.
I also realized that "champaign" colored can be very different depending on who is presenting it.
Over the years I have purchase various silks labeled "champaign" and am always amused at the various different colors of fabric I receive.
This silk was sold to me as "champaign" colored and I think it's almost a platinum/beige/goldish/champaign color.
Anyway, with this said, here is Bridal Hair Flower Fluttering Flora

I also recently listed this piece: Bridal Fascinator Delicate Serenade

This is another one of those really challenging to photograph pieces.
It is just SO MUCH PRETTIER in person and just looks like a white "wash" of color in the photos. The vintage inspired brooch piece is really a great design because it not only has various sizes of Swarovski crystals which REALLY sparkle but there are these cool iced glass marquis cut pieces that remind me of 50's style jewelry.
Of course, I added a LOT of smaller various sizes of clear Swarovski crystals that radiate from the focal piece and the whole thing TOTALLY shines when light hits it.
Perhaps in the near future I'll even become a better photographer!

I have another Fluttering Beauty piece but I haven't downloaded the pictures for that one yet.
Hopefully I'll have that one to share in a later post.
