You Must Know About Etsy!

One of the best kept secrets of the craft world is Etsy. It’s like an ebay “buy it now” shop of incredibly talented artists that have everything from hand carved bowls to ring bearer pillows and just about everything between. Be sure to open up an afternoon of your work calendar to get lost in all the shops. Simply enter what you’re looking for in the search bar, and shop away.

There are tons of shops that I absolutely love and think that many of you will be able to find things to personalize your look for your next party or big event. I’ll share some of my favorite shops with you from time to time… and I hope you’ll share your faves with me.
On to the good stuff!
Myrakim owns the shop ‘Twigs and Honey’ and makes gorgeous, non-traditional hair pieces that would be great for the bride that wants to forgo the veil or change it up with something special just to kick off the reception. I absolutely love the vintage glam look and feel of her items and she’s got items for both the maids and the new Mrs.
A few of my faves hair pieces

I’m not sure which compliments the other better: The model to the birdcage veil or the veil to the model…. either way, the whole look is so eclectic and stunning.

I love love love the colors of the hair piece on the left with the silk flowers and peacock feathers. It’s a punch of unexpected color in her dark hair. I love how the hair piece on the right is delicate yet stately. If you’re not comfortable with this as high and forward on your hair, you could easily wear both of them snug against a chignon or pony tail.

Another fantastic take on the birdcage veil combined with a small fascinator of silk flowers and feathers. Embrace the birdcage! A lot more people look as awesome as the model but they’re afraid they can’t pull it off. At least try one on if you think it would compliment your ensemble.

There is something so airy and feminine about this bolero. It’s clearly meant for cuteness and not for warmth, so pack accordingly!

As if the hair pieces and bolero weren’t enough, her boutonnieres are incredibly detailed and unique… and reusable! A combinations of silk flowers, feathers, beads, and dried seeds make these something you haven’t seen before. You can buy them individually or as sets.
