Announcement   Hattitude jewelry is one of a kind pieces made using recycled vintage materials. It is hand made by Hattie Dunstan. Jewellery as unique and one-of-a-kind as you are. Perfect for the vintage loving gal.

I specialize in making custom vintage pieces for your wedding day for the bride and bridesmaids. I can take an old family heirloom or you can tell me the colour palette of your wedding and I will custom design necklaces or bracelets and earrings for your wedding party.

I'm 28 years old and 6 years ago underwent a double lung transplant that saved my life. After my surgery I turned my love of fashion and creating into a full time job for myself. I have a studio show room where I make and sell the items. I also sell my designs online.

You can find my curly bob of hair, hunting at the local flea markets, at the coffee shop reading a good book, or in my favourite destination Barbados.

Gorgeous and custom made to match a necklace I purchased for my wedding day. Hattie was a pleasure to work with and designs classic and beautiful pieces!

This necklace is gorgeous, but on the backside of the gems the work looks a little "piecey". There's large globs of glue that seems to be holding two large metal pieces to the back of the larger gems. I gave it 3 stars because of the odd craftsmanship on the back of the necklace which is actually noticeable from the front if someone is standing close to you. And because the strands were intertwined and I had to disassemble a side to correct it so that they would fall properly. I really wanted to give this a good rating but for the price I paid and having to adjust things on my own, it just seems like the work was rushed through.

About

One of a kind jewellery using vintage redesigned pieces

I live just outside Toronto, Ontario with my husband, Tristan and our fur babies, our cat Beau and our dog Melvin. I'm a beach fanatic, social butterfly and thrifter extrodinaire.
I have a curly bob of hair, love the 1920's, the idea of magic and ice cream drizzled in maple syrup.

I started my Bridal wedding shop in January 2013. I was born with cystic fibrosis, which eventually robbed me of my breath and my lung function, requiring me to enlist to get a double lung transplant. I was lucky enough to get a match and received two beautiful lungs, 6 and a half years ago.

After I recovered from my surgery, I turned my passion for fashion into a full time job for myself. I take vintage pieces and re create them in to new pieces for bridal parties to wear!

    My name is Hattie. I love reading, vintage hunting and curling up with my calico cat while reading a good book. I also love hiking through the woods out on the trail with my beagle dog, Melvin. I have a contagious laugh and a curly head of hair.

With Antique Pieces comes a history, and a story, but also delicacy. Each piece is very old, anywhere from 20-70 years old. With 70 years of history, comes 70 years of stories. Although they are all handled with care, rarely, but sometimes an old antique piece can falter. Hattitude fixes or repairs all Hattitude products to keep the stories and history of each piece alive for generations to come. Please email contact me for repairs or alterations on Hattitude products.
