In the Studio: Cat Ears

Earlier this month, we were sent a custom request for a floral trimmed lace cat headband.

After searching along fashion district for some floral trims to add to the headband and coming up with nothing special, I decided to make the flowers by hand by sewing blush pink chiffon together and hand beading tiny rhinestones and pearls on the top.

We've gotten such a huge response from our Facebook post, I've added these to the our online shop.

I had such an awesome time popping up last Saturday for  Etsy's first Made in Canada event. It was so busy I didn't get a chance to instagram or live tweet from the event.

From the large turn out of people it's obvious that Canadians, and especially Torontonians, love handmade and vintage! If you had a chance to make it out, thank you for supporting small businesses and crafters.

Crystal Obsession

crstal quartz and amethyst gemstones
So lately I've been obsessing over gemstones and crystal quartz stones. I've been experimenting with these two elements for a raw and refined look.

These crystals originate from all over the world in mining caves from Morocco, Mexico, Tibet and China. I've hand picked each of these gems for their shape, color and clarity so each one is one of a kind. My favorite is the Tibetan crystal quartz with the irregular points on each end, I'll be sad to let this one go.
