Shabby workmanship Does not fit and very shaky on my head Ribbons frayed and coming loose around the main head Roses appear dusty Spent a lot of money will donate to Goodwill. Thank God I brought one from Midnight Velvet.
Adventuresome duo love to create together.
ClaraBelle's Hats all start out on an antique head block named ClaraBelle. And the two ladies who create with her are Kari & Anni, a mother / daughter team of creative energy.
Kari has sewn for approx 38 yrs and made everything from preemie clothes to wedding gowns. She crochets, knits,and paints, but her BIG love affair is with hats. ANY kind of hat will get started on ClaraBelle when inspiration hits, which is daily.
Some of the most creative / off the wall inspiration has come via Anni. Kari's oldest daughter. Anni loves to crochet, knit, sew, and hang out while brainstorming or creating with Kari. She creates hats too and is the main model for most photos in our shop.
ClaraBelle's Hats started as a business after the wedding of Kari's younger daughter. Everyone loved the gowns and hats of the bridal party and family, which were created by Kari and Anni. With that encouragement, an online presence was started, including Etsy. The duo started working selling locally, with fashion shows, and are developing their own hat and accessory show.

Owner, Maker, Designer
Anni knits, crochets, sews alternative type clothing and millinery work with Kari. Together they take a wisp of nostalgia, with a bit of goth, add a nip of 1920's - 1940's, a hint of steam punk and turn of the century, creating wearable art.
No two products are exactly the same, so each item has it's own special charm.
We hope you find our shop a joy to visit.
