On Etsy since 2010

Hello Beauty!

Welcome to Mata Hari's Daughter.

Here you will find exotic and intriguing, one of a kind headdresses, inspired by and indeed made from, the collectible antique bits and bobs, textiles and vintage sparklies I find whilst on my treasure hunting adventures.

A touch of perfectionism, along with skilled craftsmanship makes your Mata Hari's Daughter Original an heirloom quality collectible itself.

I absolutely adore creating custom headwear so don't be shy if you have a vision you want to see realized right onto that pretty little head of yours!

A bit of back story...
As a life long artist I have made magical things, from jewelry to fine art, costumes and fantasy environments, monster masks and spooky decor. But one day I made the most magical thing of all. Her name is Charlotte. I needed to find a crafty way to stay at home whilst her Dada flew to the Far East in pursuit of monsters!
Well... monster making more precisely. With my love of the beautiful, the fantastical, and the old, I started creating once again and Mata Hari's Daughter was born.

The name Mata Hari's Daughter comes from the spirit of reinvention wildly personified by Mata Hari herself, who flew in the face of Victorian convention and dared to express herself at all cost. As the daughters of the rule breakers and magic makers that came before, we get to write our own thrilling adventures. Have at it my loves!

Oh so many stories to tell and a headdress for each of them Dah-ling!

Additional policies and FAQs
~Custom orders~

Custom orders are so very welcome!

I usually cannot duplicate any of the pieces I have created due to the nature of the materials I use, but I often use previous designs as the inspiration for custom orders. I would be delighted to make your vision come true.

A non-refundable deposit of $100 is due up front and the remainder due upon completion and your approval. Once a design and materials are agreed upon I will create a listing for your custom piece. Select "other" as your payment option when purchasing your custom listing and I will invoice you online.

~A note on construction and care~

Your Mata Hari’s Daughter original is constructed from re-purposed vintage and antique materials. With the occasional exception, my pieces are one of a kind. You will receive the item you see in the photographs. Materials are selected for their beauty and signs of age in the vintage and antique materials are not considered flaws. Old is beautiful. Each piece is carefully constructed and should last a lifetime if properly stored.
If you happen to damage your piece, due to having one too many exciting adventures whilst wearing your fabulous headwear, please feel free to contact me, as I am more than happy to make repairs if you are willing to pay the shipping fees.

Reservations and Payment Plans are available with a 25% deposit.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
