Julianna's work, creativity, attention to detail and willingness to do whatever I asked was amazing. Her pieces are of the highest quality and exquisite. She will do anything you ask, anything you can visualize, she can make it happen!

I could not have been happier with the masks custom made for our wedding; they were the PERFECT addition to the day! So much detail went into my mask and it is BEAUTIFUL. Thanks to Julianna and BeacauseItSparkles for such a great job!!!

I didn't think it was possible for my cute little spiders could not be more incredible in person...but they are! I ordered one for me and the other as a gift and I almost didn't want to give the second one away! The quality is amazing and everyone who has seen it has adored it as much as I. I love seeing all the incredible and unique pieces that come out of your shop and look foward to purchasing again in the furture!

Custom bridal and costume; From your imagination to my creation.

My littlest sister, who is oh so very fashion savvy, told me once as we were out shopping, "Julianna, you have great style," (Yay! Approval!) "and you have a really good fashion sense," (Yay!) "but Julianna, just because it sparkles, doesn't mean it's pretty."

And we have had to settle to agree to disagree.

Maybe it was my upbringing on the stage, but I love for anything to have a touch of sparkle, pzazz, romance, or whimsy. Being on stage gave me an opportunity to play with costumes, props, make-up, hair, accessories, sets...and I've taken all that experience into creating beautiful, memorable pieces in many different aesthetics.

I love making things for brides--!! Does it get more romantic, whimsical, beautiful, memorable, or sparkly that that? And of course, with my background, I delight in making items for the stage.

The process of working with someone to create a custom order is magical for me. I am constantly meeting brides who know what they want, and can't find it. The challenge is exciting! And of course I love seeing their joy when the item they imagined has come to fruition.

So no matter what my fashionista sister says: I believe that all things that sparkle are beautiful; Especially people.

Welcome to my unique Boutique! After years in the musical theater world, where beautiful costumes, accessories, and props must be produced quickly, I learned to create a wide variety of crafts. Soon personal requests began pouring in, and this fabulous little shop was born.

I believe that things that sparkle are beautiful: Especially people.

I LOVE to do custom orders! Due to the nature of this craft, it's a good idea to contact me about special orders at least three weeks before your event. Bouquets must be ordered a month in advance. That gives me time to collect the materials, make your handmade request, and ship it to you.

I love to trade. Convo if you are interested!
