Update: PLEASE make sure your address is up to date in Etsy before purchasing - I've had too many packages returned back to me because of incorrect addresses. I want to make sure you receive your orders <3

Please make sure you are aware of the processing times before purchasing. Everything is made to order just for you! I know I might take a little bit more time to create my pieces than some, but I am a perfectionist and put great care and love into every piece I make.

Thank you!

Working on crowns & trying not to let other sellers who decided to start copying my crowns get me down. Guess felt baby crowns segway nicely into avant garde headwear? I asked them to stop & was met with hostile excuses. Please don't support knockoffs.

I'm excited to introduce high quality vegan leather to the shop! All relevant listings have been updated with this material option. It only took me 3 years to find a vegan leather option I was happy with ;)

About

Beautiful, fanciful, dark adornments.

Nearly everything I do, I start on a whim, with inspiration coming from sometimes unlikely sources.

My harness collection was inspired by a piece of Duralar mylar sheet. I went down to Seattle Fabrics and found a roll of clear marine window vinyl. I pulled some buckles off of an old pair of high waisted jeans that buckles at the waist and patterned a bizarre vest harness contraption right on my body. I wore it out dancing and felt like a bad ass. I was hooked.

Less than a year later, I have refined my designs and techniques, sourced high quality materials, and am lucky enough that people are really enjoying my work.

An underlying theme in nearly all of my work is juxtaposition and contrast. One one hand, I'm making streamlined, sleek, minimal pieces. On the other, I'm making deconstructed, layered, intricate work with shredded gauze and antiqued hardware.

If you follow my Instagram, you'll also see photos of my millinery (hatmaking) work - delicate handmade silk flowers are a sharp contrast from pvc harnesses!

My millinery work has been featured in Marie Claire magazine. My harness work has been featured in Bust, Teen Vogue, Elle Canada, and many more!

My harnesses can be purchased locally in Seattle at the New York XChange on Broadway in Capitol Hill, The Uncommon Cottage in Fremont, Party Hat in Pioneer Square, and online at Dolls Kill. You can also meet me at my Ballard art studio by appointment.

Thanks for taking a look and thank you so much for your support!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I don't do custom orders because even small changes take a lot of time. Basically, if the ask is significant enough that I'll have to put up a custom listing for it, I won't have time to do it. Thank you for your understanding!

Wholesale availability

I do offer wholesale, please contact me at wholesale@apatico.net for line sheets and more information. It may take a bit for me to get back to you if I need to update information. Your patience is appreciated.

Does ______ item come in holographic pvc?

Holographic pvc is layered over clear, which means it doesn't work for certain designs. When items become available in holographic pvc (meaning, when I have time to redesign/make samples/photograph/list them), I will list them. Thank you for your patience!

Do you offer custom sizing?

Yes! Custom sizing is free.

I saw __________ item on your instagram, but I don't see it in your Etsy shop!

I don't list everything on Etsy. Many items are available only on my website, www.apatico.net. If it's not available yet, don't worry - it will be eventually!
