Great necklace thank you I love it.
The office life wasn't for me...
I used to work at an architecture firm. It was great but I felt like my dreams had betrayed me. I didn't want to spend my life slaving away behind a computer working on someone elses dream. So I became a Creative Artist who designs unique, one of a kind feather art and metal jewelry. I established Wandering Lily Designs in 2010. As a Creative Artist, I transform the beauty of nature with naturally molted peacock feathers, as well as other feathers such as, pheasant, rooster, guinea fowl into durable, sustainable fashion jewelry and hair accessories. The feather jewelry includes pendants, earrings and chokers. The accessories include hair clip fascinators ranging in sizes from small to large that can be placed in hair to enhance a hairstyle or to embellish a hat, lapel, or handbag for the discriminating woman. In addition, other jewelry is individually designed utilizing gold, sterling silver, brass and copper metals into pendants, earrings, bracelets and wire wrapped rings. Wandering Lily Designs is an amalgamation of my background in architecture, graphic design, fashion, and varied interests in anthropology, and traveling abroad. These elements are always contributing to the development of fresh new lines of jewelry and hair accessories. I grew up in beautiful San Diego, California; and as a youth spent much time exploring the local canyons, preserves, beaches, mountains and deserts. Abundant local sun combined with diverse nature environments influenced the Creative Artist with a profound appreciation for these elements and so my designs reflect the beauty of nature in a subtle way.

This company is dedicated to following your gut instincts; Moral compass due North, taking risks, and having no regrets. I am going to exhaust all the opportunities afforded me by birthright to give others the opportunity to educate themselves and have access to the hope, and opportunity that I was blessed with, We all are born free. The waste of human life by sheer lack of water is disdainful,something has to be done, and someone has to do something. People are rising up for human rights all around the world. Complacency is no longer acceptable, We cannot sleep at night if we are not working to help mend these broken societal structures. People are suffering, needlessly. That is the core of what Wandering Lily Designs works for.
A Note on Monotony – Hair Clips
Your wardrobe has been done, over and over and over again. All the major labels and brand names and fashion houses have done everything, right? Well monotony lurks everywhere; and relieving monotony allows us to think, openly and clearly about other ways of doing, thinking, being. A pretty heavy statement can be simmered down to simple application. Take my lovely and simple flower hair clips. These hair clips are ready to be attached anywhere you can imagine; on your coat lapel as a new age floral brooch, into your hair of course, onto your purse for added flair, onto your hat band, onto the top cuff of your sexy winter boots, the ideas continue into eternity. The choice is yours. Be like everyone else, or dare to do something you haven’t seen before.

We are very interested in helping to bring your dreams to reality! Using our creativity and tools and your imagination we can make most anything you desire. Please call or write to discuss your ideas. The above-pictured project is an example of our diversity and tenacity when approaching a dream. The pictured dress is a 16th century Venetian Courtesans Gown. Handmade, researched and designed by Alicia, the head designer and creator at Wandering Lily Designs. “I always wanted a big dress like this, I didn’t know for what or why, so I made that up as I went along too. We decided to go to Carnivale in Venice, Italy, which dictated the color scheme of the gown. While had always been attracted to red for this idea, it was a hard decision to make, because I love greens and blues; But the premiere colour of Venice is red. From there I added elements I always wanted, big poofy white undersleeves huge external cathedral detachable sleeves, an absolutely stunning 110” hemline on my skirt for twirling and feeling like a princess.” It was a long hard project as Alicia decided to make every single layer of the traditional period costume. Like an onion peel, there are many layers, highlights include an alpaca stuffed bum roll and hand cartridge pleated 9-yard skirt. It took 9 months of working on the gown after she got off work from her full time job to make the dream come true. "It was worth every pin prick, snagged thread, re-do, and late night. I LOVE that dress."
