Robyn and I have been toying with the idea of designing a line of hair accessories for the last year or so. We talk about it, discuss potential designs, materials and styles and then go back to our comfort zone of making jewellery.

Well this past September we finally bit the bullet! We were asked for a quote on hair accessories for a beautiful bride (Nicole) and her bridal party. Robyn and I hashed out options and a cost estimate and provided that to Nicole. She let us know a few days later that she liked our proposal best and off we were to make our first commissioned set of hair accessories! The most exciting part for us what that the option Nicole selected was designed with dyed leather, which is a material we’d never worked with before. Robyn and I set to work while I was in Ottawa on vacation, cutting the leather, dyeing the leather and assembling the pieces.

I delivered them to Nicole when I got back to Edmonton after my vacation and she has recently sent us some lovely pictures from her big day. Here are a couple to show you the finished product! We made the triangle shaped hair clips in off-white, marigold and blue as well as the  birdcage veil the bride is wearing.

Robyn started playing with crystal hair clip designs and I started experimenting with feather hair fascinators! Look for a line of hair accessories from us in early 2014! – Roxy
