Announcement   Welcome to Chelsea's Pretty Things, Where a Plain Tutu is Never Enough!!


ATTENTION... I WILL BE CLOSED TO CHRISTMAS ORDERS AS OF DECEMBER 1ST. ANYTHING ORDERED AFTER THAT DATE WILL NOT BE GUARANTEED FOR CHRISTMAS DELIVERY UNLESS IT IS A PREMADE ITEM.



I am very excited to be a part of the world of handmade, custom accessories for girls of all ages! Please come back to check out what I add to this shop... as it hopefully will change frequently with the addition of the samples and resells section!

All tutus, bows and jewelry are handmade by myself, Shannon Hopkins in my smoke free pet friendly home.

In my shop you will find a variety of items for all your little princess needs including loopy style boutique bows, rag style bows and flip flops, full tutus on crochet waists to fit up to 30 inches around at times, tutu dresses, petti style tutus, jewelry and occasionally a few samples of other items I make typically only for friends including embellished onesies and ruffle bloomers.

I am an SRAJD (Self Representing Artist-Jewelry Designer), and I try to use as many SRA beads as possible in my adult and occasionally in my childrens designs. If you are an SRA bead artist, I would love to hear from you and see your items! Many bracelets contain leaded crystal or silver plated pieces..... If you like a design, but prefer it for any girl under 12, please ask me for a lead free version of it, if possible I will make it for you at the custom pricing.


All of my loop style bows are handsewn to french clips, and most are true OOAK orders.
All tutus are hand tied to crochet bands that I do sew together if needed to make up to 30 inch waists.

I LOVE to do custom orders, and hope you will consider using Chelsea's Pretty Things for your accessory needs! Thanks for stopping by... let me know if I can do anything for you!

About

You Want Me to Pay How Much?????

Yep... that is how this started. 10 years ago Chelsea, my wonderful daughter... got her first modeling job with one of the designers I had met along the way on eBay.
She was just 16 months old, and was already such a girl it was funny. Pink everywhere, and we had to have ruffles etc.... this however was her first time with jewelry.
"How much is that going to cost???" was the comment heard by me when I asked about having a bracelet made for her soon after that modeling job that caused her to fall in love with her "pretties". $35 to have one 4.5 inch bracelet made... feeling that was a bit much for a small child, I decided to make my own. I was hooked... after 2 years of making them primarily for her and our friends, CPT came to be.
I then joined a few groups on eBay, my main design team "The Giggle Girls" made me think outside my own usual thoughts for designs.. but I got bored. Around this same time, Chelsea had decided that she really wanted tutus... I looked around. $50 for a tutu to fit a child still wearing a 2/3t??? Are you kidding?? How difficult can they be... hahahaha... when people say that to me now, I laugh and think back to the day I made my first one. Oh boy, what a mess.
I soon discovered ways to get tulle in cheaper rolls via wholesale companies... and started making so many that my family was ready to commit me to the hospital for evaluation. No 3 year old needs 45 tutus!
Tutu dresses didn't come till years later, and with the wonderful addition of the crochet bands, they are so much easier to make, and make them even more affordable!
I got bored again with just tutus and the occasional jewelry item... so bows came to be about 3 years ago now. Sadly, due to fibro and arthritis, I no longer take custom orders for bows... I only do the occasional OOAK one to sell, and most go on my Facebook page before I can even get them listed here.
On that note, I hope you will look for me on FB for the occasional sale code, or upcoming specials that are only advertised there.
Thanks for checking out CPT's story... hope now you will check out my shop and find something you truly love... and PS... yes, I do have items of higher prices.... but they are still at what covers cost and half my time to make them...

Once you purchase it, it is yours. However, if you are truly unsatisfied with your purcase once you receive it, contact me to work out a possible solution to your dislike.

For all custom items, I require a payment of half the cost at the time of order. This pays for supplies required to make your item(s). This is for custom, non purchased directly through etsy items only. This deposit is non refundable once the order is under construction.

If however, an item is damaged in transit, send it back and I will recreate your item(s) to the best of my ability as many things are OOAK.
