About





I am a very crafty grandma that has work with her hands since childhood. I learned watching my grandmother to work on beautiful knitting and crotchet pieces, she also taught me how to use the sewing and knitting machines. My Mother was also an expert in many handcrafts, so it is in my blood to be creative and I am always working in some project for my children, and now my grandchildren!!!

My Son got married in Cancun Mexico, and while helping the bride get ready suddenly the hairdresser looked at me with a big surprise and said: "She doesn't have any ornaments for her hair", my mouth dropped, I grabbed my purse and the car keys and ran to the mall in the other side of town, we only had 2 more hours before the photographer would arrive to take the pictures…

My Son got married in Cancun Mexico, and while helping the bride get ready suddenly the hairdresser looked at me with a big surprise and said: "She doesn't have any ornaments for her hair", my mouth dropped, I grabbed my purse and the car keys and ran to the mall in the other side of town, we only had 2 more hours before the photographer would arrive to take the pictures before heading to the church ceremony.

Fortunately I had gone to the mall with my youngest daughter Lety to buy a hair accessory for her, she was to be a Maid of Honor!!, so I knew where to go. Erica, the bride didn't wanted anything ostentatious so I had to find a small couple of pins with some sparkles. As soon as I got to the store the sales ladies helped me find something that Erica would be happy with.

I rushed back to the hotel and in 30 minutes we were ready for the photographer. After all that I had dreams about hair accessories for brides, lots of ideas came into my mind.

I thought it could be a great adventure to set up this little shop in partnership with Lety my youngest daughter, while she continues going to college working on these accessories will be a great way for her to have some income.

We have now designed unique hair accessories using clips, pins, barrettes and hair combs. We are working mainly with cultured fresh water pearls, natural gemstones, glass pearls, glass beads and Swarovski rhinestones.

I hope that our hair accessories can inspire a future bride, her bridesmaids and flower girls, or just about anyone that likes some sparkles in her hair.

Happy Moments to you!!
