Every single item I have ordered from Chatterblossom has been superbly made, high quality, and absolutely one of a kind. This beautiful pansy headband is no exception. I have had a pansy love affair most of my life, and finding something that spoke to my personality so specifically felt meant to be. I love it!! Thank you Jamie!!!

Another wonderful flower from ChatterBlossom! These are particularly adorable as they’re a set of 3, so you can wear as many or as little as you want! Colors are gorgeous, too.

About

Accessories with a Story to Tell

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.” - Douglas H. Everett

I decided to start ChatterBlossom as a way to travel along with people in their "magic" moments. The moments that memories are imprinted and carried along until the next person picks it up and tries to imagine how that life was lived.

Whenever I browse through an old shop or meander through an antique store, I try to imagine what life each item may have had. The adolescent girl that brushed her hair with an old vanity set, the weathered hands that clipped each thread off an embroidered cushion, the family chatter heard in the background as a young child reads their favorite book. These images and people float around with me and I wanted to be able to dream in the other direction too. I wanted to be able to create something that someone else would use and touch and incorporate into their present lives.

Making hair accessories and button jewelry that live on a person was an intriguing way to make that possible. Using repurposed vintage millinery flowers and antique buttons lets me take something that has a past and attach it to something that will have an untold future.

Each piece I make has a name and a small story of its own and I love thinking about the person that will see or read and connect with it in some way and anticipate some small adventure in which it will play a part.

    Romantic at heart, I love to create things that tell a story and can whisk you to another place locked deep in memory or imagination. I get excited to think that something I made could create an atmosphere of playfulness and intrigue for the wearer.
