About

Bridal Bling is My Thing!

As a costume designer, I loved designing the beautiful gowns and sassy flapper costumes in shows like Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Chicago for our theatre group. My ideas were ALWAYS bigger than the budget, but I was able to work them in as much as possible. Our town of Frankfort, Illinois, holds one of the best Fall Festivals in the country and last year, I decided to try to enter. Wanting to do small items, I tried repurposing vintage brooches into jeweled and fabric brooches, necklaces and headbands, using organza, tulle and various fun fabrics. I NEVER thought I'd make it, but there I was, one of the chosen out of a couple of thousand entries!!! I found some rhinestone brooches online and had some white and ivory tulle and organza. I tried a couple of bridal hairpieces, and necklaces, and put a bridal section in my booth, and marked them as "custom order." I had a month's worth of bridal orders, to my HUGE surprise! I decided to try an Etsy shop and expanded my line to include all kinds of bridal accessories, with the focus on "custom" design and coordinating items.

I designed my logo for my banner, business cards and coordinating items. The pink and black and white design was an idea from a bathroom in my home with black and white wallpaper and bright pink accents. The font came from my love of The Great Gatsby!

I love working with brides both near and far, and have been lucky enough to open a shop in the same town where last year I had a 10 x 10 tented booth!! The "BB" logo in the middle of my banner is on all my black patent gift bags in my shop and I was even able to find matching black and white tissue!! Don't worry, online brides, your orders arrive to you just as beautifully wrapped!!

My materials come from Etsy, E-Bay, my local stores, as well as a ribbon shop in Chicago that was absolute KISMET to find! My favorite things to work with are vintage rhinestone and enamel buttons, lace, feathers, birdcage veiling, and of course, vintage brooches and fabric!

Brides, come and be my muse!! I will design a dream for you!!

    Fabric has always been my muse. For 10 years, I designed costumes for a theatre group, the more bling in the show, the better! I designed and sewed Beauty & the Beast Belle's yellow gown with 10,000 sequins and 1400 Swarovski rhinestones!
