About

Art, Feathers, Love & Aloha - art from the heART

Aloha & thank you for stopping by! My name is Michelle Curiel, but you can call me Birdie! I currently live on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu, making beautiful colorful art in a variety of different mediums, namely feathers! If you know anything about me, you know that I live and breath art in everything that I do everywhere I go.

So here's a quick synopsis of my story: Once upon a time I was born and raised in the outskirts of Los Angeles. My artistic passion began at a very young age. Like other children, I was given crayons and a coloring book. But for me, the process of transforming white space with strokes of beautiful color left an indelible impression. Art quickly became my lifetime passion.

I began making feather headdresses for myself to wear to festivals in 2011. When people began asking me where they could get one, I decided to sell a few on Etsy. Back then, I had a 9-5 office job and felt like a bird in a cage! When orders started pouring in, I realized I had a chance to follow my dream of becoming a full-time artist. In 2012 I quit my job, packed a few bags and moved to Hawaii to seek a new slower paced life filled with waterfalls, rainbows and sunshine. Yes Please!

Constantly inspired by my surroundings, I express my innermost feelings through art. I live by the belief that beauty resides within us regardless of circumstance. This beauty is love, creativity and inspiration. You can find it if you look for it with your heART.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
100% Handmade & Custom heARTwork
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Whether it be a glorious headpiece that you wear or something that you can proudly display on your wall, you can be assured that what you get is something that has been made with love by my own hand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I stand by my work
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Everything that I create has value and meaning to me. These are my babies! I want whatever you bring home to last you throughout the years, including wearable accessories and headdresses. If your pieces incur damage that need a little love, please do not ever hesitate to contact me, I am always happy to bring your pieces back to life!

Frequently asked questions

Feather Mohawks - How secure is the clip?

I provide hair ties and step by step instructions along with a video on how to wear your mohawk. Once it's on - it's ON! In fact, they were designed to be able to withstand dust storms at Burning man! It is a piece that can literally be worn all day - I even slept in mine once. If you follow the instructions on how to wear it and really secure it in place(super tight hair ties, extra hair gel!!!), you should not have any problems with it falling off. I also can add an adjustable strap if you have little to no hair or would like the option at your request.

Feather Mohawks: My hair is short, bald or I have a very sensitive scalp so I prefer a strap as opposed to a clip.

If there is no drop down option in the listing, just let me know in notes during checkout and I will add an adjustable strap to your mohawk.

Feather Mohawks and Headdresses: Just how custom can you make my piece?

If you can think it up, I can make it! Contact me to discuss if you do not see what you are looking for. I love to take on new projects. More examples of my work can be found at www.facebook.com/artfromtheheART or feel free to add me at facebook.com/artisticalshell and take a look through my albums or tagged photos of people proudly the pieces I have made for them!

Can I see it before you ship it?

Yes! At your request, I will email you a photo of the exact one you will be getting before I send it out so that I get your seal of approval! I can also Skype, Facetime or send you a video at your request.

How many changes can I make after you show me a photo of my piece?

I don't place a limit on perfection. I will make as many changes as necessary until you are happy with it! Extra charges may apply if you request something that is going to take a lot longer to create or if it has to be special ordered.

How much will my feather mohawk or headdress weigh?

They're actually quite light - as feathers!

+Smaller feather mohawks are about 2.5-4 ounces
+Larger Mohawks are about 6-9 ounces.
+Headdresses can be anywhere between 6-1.5 pounds depending on what materials are used. 95% of the time they are always under a pound.

How long before I receive my piece?

Please allow about 1-4 weeks for me to get it made for you and shipped out so you can rock this baby out on the town, party, rave, festival, carnival, mardi gras, photoshoot, concert, New Years Eve, Halloween - anywhere you want to WOW people and turn heads, this is what you need!!!

NOTE: If you need it by a specific day sooner than the 2-4 week waiting period, please let me know so we can work something out. 95% of the time I can make it within the time period that you need, as soon as a next day turnaround!

What company do you use for shipping?

US ORDERS: Once it it ready, unless otherwise specified I will ship your item via USPS Priority Shipping which takes about 3-5 business days. If it is time sensitive I will send via USPS Priority express which takes 2 days to arrive. If you would like to use FedEx or UPS please let me know, additional charges will apply.

Everywhere else: I use registered mail, which takes 6-10 business days. If this is time sensitive then I can send via Global Express shipping for an additional fee and takes about 5 business days to ship as long as customs does not hold your item back. UPS and FedEx are also options for an additional fee.

Feather Mohawk: How Do I wear it? (with clip)

Detailed instructions on how to wear your feather mohawks built on a clip can be found in this video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uT6xsgoGO5o

Once it's on, you rest be assured that it will be on securely and comfortably - I've even forgotten that I have it on sometimes! Holds on tightly with a with a banana clip & hair ties (included). No headband needed! This is something you can wear to a party and swing your head in any direction without feeling like it might fall off! FUN!

Can I use UPS or FedEx instead of USPS?

Absolutely! Let me know which company you prefer to ship. Additional charges may apply.
