The item itself I loved and would give 5 stars for the quality of the piece. The overall experience with this shop I would give a 2. It took 6 weeks from the time I ordered this item until it arrived in my town (I live in Canada). Even though it was supposed to be shipped no later than 4 weeks after purchase, it took this shop 5 weeks. I had to go to my local post office and enlist the help of my mailman in order to get it on time for my wedding. I would recommend the product, but be sure to order with a good two month window because one month is obviously not enough.

Item was GORGEOUS! However I took a star off due to it not being shipped when promised.

Tammy, I'll give you the "love it" review for the quality and workmanship of your product. The hairclip truly completed my bridal updo. I would urge potential buyers to have patience with Tammy; as wedding stress mounted I also nearly lost my cool as I communicated my concerns regarding delivery of my item. Tammy was reasonably responsive to each and every single one of my messages to her, and ultimately, she overnighted my piece to me in order to make it to my house before I left for my out of town wedding. In her defense, she is extremely upfront about the turn around time of her work product. I'd encourage future customers to message her prior to placing their orders if they are even slightly outside of her production window. I placed my order on 9/2 and received it at my doorstep on 9/30, right inside the 3-4 week estimate.
"Creating Beautiful Brides"
Hello I am Tammy Kowalczyk and I have been in the beauty business for over 25 years. My passion and main focus now is FancieStrands Bridal Boutique. I offer handmade wedding and bridal accessories that you will not find in a chain bridal store. Each piece is handcrafted by me with great attention to detail and is an original design exclusively for FancieStrands.
I take great pride in every piece I create and I find it very rewarding when I can create something special for each one of my bridal clients. Some of my favorite pieces have come from ideas a bride and I have collaborated on together. This insures she is reflecting her own personal style and personality. I love working with beautiful laces, silk chiffon, satin, velvet, tulle, french netting and organza fabrics. My pieces are adorned with wispy feathers, vintage or modern trims, swarovski crystals, rhinestones and pearls. Some one of a kind pieces may incorporate a special vintage jewel!
Want to create your own wedding accessories? I will be happy to work with you on a custom piece(s). You can incorporate vintage family jewelry, laces and other special fabrics from your grandmother or mothers wedding dresses. The possibilities are endless.
Need help with a design? Together we can create a one of a kind heirloom piece that reflects your personality and style. All of my handcrafted pieces can be used and enjoyed for years to come.
FancieStrands.com is currently operated by me only with no outside help. All wedding and bridal accessories are designed and created by Tammy Kowalczyk.
