Ordered ONE headband and on November 18 she finally answered me and said it wouldn't be ready due to her production line policy. It does not say how or where to check that! It should've been said at the time of the sale and I would've cancelled ONE HEADBAND order! Instead she did not offer any apology or explanation except that I should've read her policy. After I read dies not say how or where this info is available! Geez... It was one headband! Totally disappointed! I could understand if this cotton headband was covered in jewels but it's a BABY COTTON PLAIN HEADBAND! I was so disappointed! Especially because she made me feel like I had no right to question why it hadn't been delivered. Just beware because THANK GOD I didn't have a REAL need for this but what if I had had one??? Geez! Great shop! Good luck!

{Design}- To Openly Embrace the Creative Process and be Vulnerable to Seeing the Possibilites....

It begins with an idea, a source of inspiration, or a feeling. Each collection takes time to develop in entirety. It is in the nurturing phase that my sketches seem to flow and the concepts become tangible to me. This is my creative sanctity. This is the world in which I love to live and feel the most alive. It is raw, emotional, and I am completely vulnerable. It is really a beautiful place to be, for me, as a designer. When the designs become clear and I can visualize the piece, I know that I will be leaving my world of abstract creativity. Designing is a process and I know this to be true. However, at the end of this intense creative process, the excitement lessons to a point. I begin now, cultivating my ideas. Molding, sculpting, cutting, sewing, layering, etc. All united by my sense of touch and the "feeling" I want the piece to express. It becomes in the end an heirloom piece of art. One that transcends time and becomes an idea for future bride, a vision for another artist, or a moment for a mother to be. It is designed for someone whom more than likely I will never meet. There is beauty in that background story of creating and designing. It allows wonderment and thought and it that, the design will stand on its own accord.

    GOD is everything! Giggles make me smile. I believe a hug TRULY does make everything better. Creativity knows NO boundaries. Designing is a PASSION and it is a vulnerable yet beautiful place to live. It is a gift to my life.

Last but not least a note about my studio and safety....
All items are made in my 100% smoke and pet free studio. Some of the hair accessories may include small objects (i.e. pearls, vintage pieces) that could pose a choking hazard if it becomes detached from the item. For this reason, adult supervision is required at all times with my pieces. I do not hold responsibility for my items once they leave my studio.
