***Please note that Halloween orders for READY TO SHIP items MUST be places by October 20th to receive free domestic shipping. After October 20th, items may need to be shipped Priority or express mail to receive them by October 31st. For custom and made to order items, items need to be purchased by October 13th to receive them by October 31st. I will update shipping times if orders get backed up.

PLEASE READ ALL SHOP POLICIES BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE.

All of my flowers, fabrics and beads are handmade or salvaged from vintage clothing or accessories. These are NOT pre-bought flowers glued onto headbands. These are truly one of a kind, hand cut, hand stitched, hand beaded flowers and accessories. I sew my flowers, beads and buttons by hand in my North-Metro Atlanta, Georgia studio. The only time I use adhesives is to attach items that are not able to be sewn, such as clock hands, some metal findings and natural items such as twigs and moss.

My fascinators and head pieces are meant to be worn for ornament only. They are not hair clips in the sense that they hold one's hair in place. They are decoration and add to your costume, wedding attire, photography, however you choose to use my pieces. If you need suggestions as to how to place my pieces in your hair, please visit www.JenniferGriffinStudios.com for a tutorial (link coming soon).

You will find in my items a bit of my favorite genres; steampunk, fairy fantasy, mermaid whimsy, Native American lore and an ancient Celtic distinction. If there is something specific you'd like to have, I would love to work with you to create your custom piece.

I do ship internationally. Due to recent price increases from the USPS, international shipping rates have dramatically increased. Please message me for combined or express international rates. I am more than happy to combine shipping or send items with express service for international customers.

I do collaboration work with photographers, magazines and other artists. I have been features in Bridal Guide magazine March 2015 issue, Weddings What's What, an online UK magazine, display in Humber Fashion Institute's 60 foot window display, Jewelry Affair Magazine April 2016, April 2018, July 2018 issues, various blogs and more. Please contact me if you are interested in working with me.

PLEASE, PLEASE read ALL shop policies before making a purchase. I am not responsible for misunderstandings about returns, refunds, shipping times, lost packages, and the like. All of these are outlined in my Shop Policies and Additional Info sections.

About

About Jennifer Griffin & Her Studio

My back ground is in interior design and I have always loved making things, using my hands. I use many different mediums to express myself, canvas painting, clay sculpting, sewing, paper crafting, mix media, photography. I love to tell stories through these mediums.

Years ago, after my first child was born I started designing hair accessories, costumes, fabric toys, bow ties and flat caps for my kids. That led into creating for other people and thus my Etsy shop opened. www.JenGriffinStudios.etsy.com
After a few years I started blending my love of vintage and antique finds with the items I was making. I moved from designing for children to designing for adults. Brides, costumers, cosplayers, festival goers. I now design not just for the children but for everyone, specializing in fairytale, tribal fusion and steampunk genera.

There are several sources that I look to for inspiration. Literature, nature, my Celtic roots as well as my Native American heritage, the ocean, to name a few. In more detail, I belong to the Delaware Indian tribe. My grandfather lived on an Indian reservation in Oklahoma. My American Indian heritage is on my fathers side and my Celtic heritage is on my mother's side. My great grandmother immigrated from Scotland and my great grandfather, whom my Scottish grandmother married, immigrated from Ireland. My ancestry and the cultures that I come from are important to me.
One of my favorite stories is Through the Looking Glass- and What Alice Found There and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Fantasy and whimsy found in these sources of inspiration have always influenced me. It shows in my work. Natural color palettes, Victorian fabrics and prints, and a hint of my Celtic and Native roots, myths and all, flavor my pieces, art, and photography. I pour a little bit of my heart, soul and history into everything I create.
You will notice there are more things in my shop besides hair accessories. I bounce back and forth between mediums and even use different mediums on the same piece. You will also notice that some of my pieces include my art photography. These images are mine and were captured by me. I have a passion for photography, especially surreal and fantasy. Through my website, www.JenniferGriffinStudios.com I offer photography services from styling/set design to photo images.

My business is small and albeit, obscure, but you can be assured you are getting a one of a kind, well made, loved art pieces and unique vintage finds, as well as excellent and unique fine art photography services.

    I love all things old, vintage and antique. I also love to re-purpose items. There are just too many fabulously historiacal items, fabric, buttons, bits and bobs to not use again. But what I love best are my children. They are my inspiration.

Additional policies and FAQs
How long do custom order/made to order items take?
Custom orders and made to order items are available and make up roughly 50% of the work I do. Please allow 1 week for custom orders and made to order items for months January through August. 2 to 4 weeks for September through December unless otherwise noted in the shop announcements section.
If you need me to design a piece from scratch please contact me for the charges involved.
Please contact me for more details as some supplies may need to be purchased online and may require more time.
Custom orders must be paid within 3 days of the listing going active, unless we have discussed a different time frame. Items not purchased in the time frame discussed, the listing will be deleted.
There is a $10 Rush fee for custom orders and made to order items that need to be completed and shipped in less than the standard week associated with custom designs and made to order items.

How do custom orders work?
After we discuss details about what you would like for me to create for you, I will create a private listing for you with a recap of your custom piece.
Once the listing is paid for I will send you photos of the supplies I will be using in your custom order. After you approve the supplies, I will begin working on your piece.
After your piece(s) are complete I will photograph the item(s) for approval. If changes need to be made, they should be made at this time. Once your piece is exactly how you want it, it will be shipped on the next business day via the shipping method of your choice.

During the process, if you have changed your mind , or unforeseen circumstances arise and you no longer wish to purchase a custom piece, please contact me asap. I can refund your money if I have not (1) purchased any supplies especially for your piece and (2) I have not cut, sewn any fabrics or used any other supplies.
In the case I have already started your piece, I will not be able to cancel your order or give you a refund. I will complete the piece and ship it to you as originally requested.
If I have NOT begun your piece and I have purchased special supplies, I can give a refund minus the cost of the exotic/special supplies purchased especially for your piece.
