* Creating Unique Designs for Special People*

As well as being an artist who paints, I have been a textile artist for many many years. I painted landscapes onto clothing and when I learnt to crochet in the late 80's I also taught myself Tapestry Crochet, before I knew it had a name. I 'painted' with colours in yarn on my beanies (woolen hats) and customers at my weekly market stall, began requesting custom orders. So I became a Beanieologist, by demand. I am now quite known around Australia, in Beaniefest circles, for my unique, pointy hats, as I traveled in a van and bus around the country for 12 years. I am inspired by the vibrant colours in the Rainbow Region where I now reside in, Northern Rivers, New South Wales, East Coast.

I was very fortunate to have an alternative schooling, giving me the chance to explore art, drama, and free movement, in an open environment, setting me up for traveling a different road/life to many.
I am self taught in textile art, I developed my Wearable Art whilst selling it at a local weekly market, in the valley of St Andrews, Victoria.
It was there every Saturday, that customers saw my multi coloured Gumnut Pixie Hat and wanted one like it.

I have been awarded many awards for my sculptural exhibition hats, notably at The Alice Springs Beanie Festival, in Central Australia. My hats range from the Super Warm, - "You made a thick, fuzzy purple hat, sent to SacredStoneCamp. It was the warmest hat I found there, keeping me warm in -65°F ! Thanks for yr donation, it helped me survive. I appreciate it so much. Much love Brooklyn" - to the Magical, Spiritual, 'Temples for the Head'. They are inspired by the knowledge, that we can all Connect with what I call the 'InnerNet', particularly when the Internet is not working.

We just have to Remember to Focus Our Invisible Antennas, out of our Crowns, to the Great Universal InnerNet.

Wearing one of my 'Antennas to the Universe', helps us to focus, and Remember, that Everything Is Possible. If you dream it.
If you Imagine it. You can Manifest Anything. Wake Up and Re-Learn ... ALL THAT WE HAVE FORGOTTEN."

All my creations are individually designed, in a Freeform Process of Tapestry Crochet worked in Heartfelt, Magical, Numerological patterns.

These aren't just Hats for the Masses !

These are 'Outside the Normal', for those unafraid to be different.

For awakened conscious people who Dare to Stand Out in The Crowd

*Are you ready ...... to wear one ?*

Welcome to my world of freeform woolen wonders. and hand painted wearable art....... All unique by their individual creation. CUSTOM ORDERS for hats, are very welcome.

Thank you for purchasing directly from artisans like myself.

All work has been hand made by myself. Each OOAK design has been created with a great deal of thought and love of fibre. I hope that you will love your special piece, with as much passion, as it was made with.

All works are individually 'Chroshayed' (crocheted) and the careful choice of colours (colors) and design are what takes the time in the creation of these unique pieces. That being said, I also 'allow' the hat 'to Choose', the way it wants to be made. I always work Freeform, sometimes using Tapestry Crochet techniques, I taught myself thru working in a freeform fashion .

Some of my hats are Award Winners at the famous Alice Springs Beaniefest held every June, in the Australian winter.

I began selling my hats at my weekly market stall at St Andrews Market in 1987 alongside my hand painted Rainbow Clothes, when customers and friends requested custom orders, like the one I was wearing. The very first one I'd made. I became a Hat maker by demand.

To date I have made several hundred (over 1,000?) hats and the designs keep developing, as the years increase. Croshaying, is quite addictive.

Every year, I enter the Beaniefest Competition and the Themes, always stretch my imagination & creativity, with what you can do with a Crochet Hook !! The more expensive hats in my shop, are some of my previous Beaniefest entries, and can hold their own as art pieces on display.

I have re-set my prices to counter the change in Currency Conversion ..... so Australian buyers can purchase at a reasonable price.

Custom Orders will need 50% Payment in Advance ..... with a second Order to be placed, for the Completed Transaction, before the order is sent.
Due to changes in Australia Post, I have discovered that the cheapest way to send my hats, is in large letters B4 size, if they can fit thru the 20mm slot for letters. So I am in the process of re-pricing the postage, for those hats that pass that sizing test.

For Australian customers, postage of items that fit large letter criteria will cost $3.50ish for up to 250gms or $5.50ish for up to 500gms depending on the price of the large envelopes. The larger items will go into a prepaid satchel @ $8.50 (500gms) and (3kg bag) if you wish to change to an Express Bag, let me know, before Checkout and I will adjust the postage price. $7.60 (B4 Large Letter) $10.85 (500gm bag) $15.65 (3kg bag) $24.80 (5kg bag)

For N Z Zone1 $6 (B4 -250gm) $11- (B4 -500gms) XpressBag $28.74

Asia/Pac Zone2 $7 " " $13.50 " " $41.06

Zone 3 - US/Can/Mid East, $8.50 (B4) $18.50 (B4 500g) XpressBag $42/09

Zone 4 - Everywhere Else. $8.50 " $18.50 " " $46.20

I send by Australia Post's Airmail : Parcels are priced by 250g and under or 500g and under, or above that.
One basic hat, is usually approximately 250gms, larger ones that are heavier will be sent in the next weight category of 500gms
Sometimes the large letter will be cheaper, sometimes a parcel with my recycled packaging will be cheaper, sometimes the pre-paid satchels work out cheaper.

Own Packaging Starts at:
Zone 1 $19.73
Zone 2 China $21.64 Asia $22.26
Zone 3 $23.72
Zone 4 Everywhere Else $28.32

The 3kg Prepaid Non-Express satchels to destinations outside of Australia are not cheap but the prices shown for those bulkier and heavier items could well be less, using my own packaging, Prices for that start at roughly 20 dollars less, but heavier items could easily reach the pre-paid satchel price or exceed it.
If the postage ends up being the much lower price, I will refund the difference.

Pre paid Satchels:
New Zealand AU$31.40
US/Cannada AU$41.80
Everywhere else AU $51.72
I will assess which is the cheapest means and refund if I can find a cheaper price

Today I learnt that a parcel might take 6 days, and the letter said 8 days. We used to be told that it "Takes up to 10 days to ship to many overseas locations but it can be up to 21 days with the vagaries of our various postal services." So it really is a total guess, what with Australia Post and your own country's postal system.
If you require special shipping, or insurance please contact me.
Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE to make Custom designed hats, for people who request them, and have made many in the past.

If you have seen some of my other work and wish to order one to suit your taste of colours, texture and style, please submit a CUSTOM ORDER, via the Request button, with your ideas and head size, (measured at the largest circumference of your head).
See more of my work here on Flickr

(please copy and paste in your browser)

or on Facebook

I will find a selection of yarns in the colours YOU REQUEST, post photos of those yarns, plus some pictures of previously made hats in styles that may suit, we can converse via Emails , Etsy CUSTOM ORDER FORMAT or Etsy Convo, or my Facebook page, where I have other hats shown.

Once we have agreed on style and colours etc I will list it Custom Order which Etsy will send direct to you, with your personal link, with the first 'COMMITMENT PAYMENT' (non refundable).

This 1st Part of Custom Order, with photos of yarn selected and range of hat styles, WILL BE .... The First Down-payment 50% (or as worked out together).

When I receive that, ...... I will create 'Your ' Special hat, ....... posting 'Work In Progress' photos to you, to view, .......... until you are happy with the result.

I will complete the hat, ........ send photos, ............... make any alterations if needed and when you feel happy with the finished hat, ..... I will list it again (Custom Order #2) for final payment and send to you, ........ when that payment arrives.
(If needed, we can arrange to do the transaction in more than two payments)

How does the CUSTOM ORDER facilitiy work ?

Click the Link under the listing photo, (of either, any listing of mine, or one that is close to your preference), then begin to list your order
a) STYLE: ie "Like the above listing photo (1-5) Or hat (link) seen on Flickr or Facebook"

b) COLOURS: ie "I like russetty browns and greens. I don't like purples!" etc

c) MODIFICATIONS: "I'd like this sort of patterning but without the pointy top. "
('Tho Pointy Tops are what I've become infamous for, and they do help you focus on your InnerNet :) )

1) Circumference around forehead and back of cranium.
2) Front hairline to top of neck (back of cranium).

e) PRICE RANGE: " I can afford $xx.xx ..... but no higher than $xxx.xx"

When we have worked out your choice preferences, via emails and photos sent etc. I will make a listing, that won't show up in my 'public' shop page. No-one else will see it, or be able to purchase it. Etsy will send you an email link to it.

This first listing, will be for an agreed 'Commitment to Purchase' before I begin work (maybe half the full cost)
When hat is completed and photos sent, I will get you to make another private Custom Order, or, I can do it, from the last etsy convo we've had, for the remainder of payment, which Etsy will then send as an email to you for you to Purchase, when it is completed.

THEN the Listing will show up in my Sold lists, I send the hat, You Receive ... check it out .... See that it Fits ..... and is what you expected ........

IF, for some strange reason, it is totally "Not You!" .... you can send it back, straight away, at your cost, and I will attempt another, for the price of the RETURN POSTAGE back to you. We'll have to make another Custom Order for the return postage payment. Unless you can 'Gift it' (or sell it on ) to someone you love.
(hopefully someone here will discover it is their hat, and it sells, back here.

Or maybe you know someone BRAVE ENOUGH to wear something so different to what everyone else is wearing, wherever you live. Have a think about that idea before sending, but DO LET ME KNOW ASAP.) If you did manage to sell it onward, then we'd have to make a new Custom Order payment for Mark2. Same deal regarding progress photos. BUT .... I will only do this ONE TIME. (via the postal service) It'd be different if it was a local transaction.

and then YOU CAN LEAVE FEEDBACK in my Shop Feedback, about the process.

(Which would be wonderful, as most of my Etsy listed hats, end up being sold Offline, and I don't get any Online Etsy Feedback Comments. All the hats listed as Custom Order Hats, have been sold offline, and deciding not to waste the time spent taking photos and listing them, I thought, "Why not use them as examples for Custom Orders.)

Looking forward to working with you, to design and create your Truly Unique ANTENNA TO THE UNIVERSE Beanie Hat, that other's will be envious of.

Be careful ...... many of my hats do go missing from the wearer's head!
