You are too sweet I must say. Not only was the product finely crafted and looked amazing on my wedding day, but overall communication was just so pleasant. Thank you for your sweet message on my actual wedding day. Everything turned out unbelievably great. I will cherish my head piece forever! :)

About

Growing into creativity

I can't pin down exactly how I got here, but I'll try to give you a little background. When I was in college I saw a girl wearing the most magnificent feather headband and I thought I would try to make one like it. I used all of the tools and supplies in my mom's craft room and got to work. I suppose it has all been a snowball from there. I started making a few for friends, and gradually that turned into a curiosity for millinery flowers.

I grew up thinking that I wasn't a very creative person, or had any particular talent for anything that was considered to be creative. If this process has taught me anything, it is that you have to find that little niche you fit into, and believe me we all have our own creative niches, and let yourself explore without the fear of failure.

I have researched, and practiced making handmade silk flowers you see in the shop for a few years now. Everyday presents the chance to learn new skills and work on my craft.

Making flowers and other bridal designs is such a thrill, and one that I truly love it. The Botanist focuses on making special, romantic pieces that add that something extra. Made from high quality and rare materials, all are made with the utmost care and attention to detail. Nature and daydreams influence all of my designs.


And a little bit about me:

Animal Lover...especially cats
Addicted to antiques roadshow
Milk Glass Collector
DIY Enthusiast
We Move frequently (my husband has a job that allows us to live in many different places)
Chopin devotee

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your stay!
Warmly,

Shipping
All items will be shipped via USPS priority mail. If you require rush shipping please convo me. Additional fees apply for rushed shipping. I will include a confirmation number in a follow-up convo after your item has shipped, so you will be aware of when it will arrive. International packages do not come with tracking.

Items have anywhere from a one to two week turnaround (all items are made to order), before they are shipped. International orders have varied shipment times due to the postal carriers. Some items may take up to 4 weeks to arrive, and that does not account for turnaround time at the studio. If a rush order is needed send a convo, and I will calculate shipping times and costs. Please plan accordingly with shipment and turnaround dates.
Refunds and Exchanges
I currently do not offer refunds. Please ask any questions before the item has shipped. If the item was damaged in shipping I will work with you to replace your order. I want you to love your order, and I will work with you to fix anything that may have happened. I do require that you ship the damaged piece back within 3 days of delivery. Shipping costs are non-refundable.

Due to the nature of custom orders, please be aware that refunds are not issued.
Additional policies and FAQs
I use vintage techniques to make these flowers. Like all handmade millinery flowers, they are susceptible to damage from moisture. The flowers I make are not waterproof. If they get wet they will lose their shape, and wilt. Humidity can also weaken the treated fabric (Plastic flowers are the only truly waterproof flowers). I size my fabric with a water soluble mixture that is comprised of non-toxic ingredients.
