It's almost show season. I love doing shows because my one of a kind items find great owners.
Every show I set up a little different but I love having a treasure box full of feathery fascinators.


Headstrong Headwear: Upcycled & Vintage Inspired Hair Accessories Est. 2010

Every hair accessory I make uses unique materials so no two are alike. My hair accessories are upcycled, that means most of the components are antique, vintage, second hand or unwanted. I'm taking unused things and making something greater than the sum of the parts. I find great pieces of vintage, costume and fashion jewelry and and use these items as inspiration for my designs. I combine this with lace, ribbon and trim to make stunning hair accessories. Everything in my store is handmade in my studio in Seattle. I spend a lot of time with the details and composition to make sure my items are sturdy and wearable as well as beautiful.

    The internet is a strange, wild place and sometimes it's hard to tell if something is handmade. This seal guarantees my items are 100% handmade.

    Vertigo is always ready to lend a paw. She reminds me to be organized and put things away or something could happen. Her office is right below mine in a little bed by the heater. Here she helping to choose ribbon for my next version. Thanks Vertigo.

Refunds and Exchanges
Your headband should arrive in the condition pictured and wonderfully gift wrapped. Despite my best efforts sometimes ribbon and fabric decorations can get rumpled during shipping. In that case you may have to fluff it out a little. If for whatever reason the item arrives with major damage I will be happy to arrange an exchange. Please keep in mind that the vintage jewelry I use may have wear, patina or even a few tiny rhinestones missing so be sure to check the photo before purchasing. That is part of the beauty of a vintage piece of jewelry. If you just don't like the aesthetics of it I will be happy to do an exchange but the customer will incur all shipping costs. Any other questions or comments you may have I will be happy to answer.

I am happy to trade with other etsy members. Also, if you are a blogger or have a large social media following I will happily send you a hair accessory free of charge so you can post about it. I also create custom pieces for weddings or special events and can include a small keepsake or family heirloom piece into your hair accessory to make it extra special.
