Feather Hair-Pieces

A few nights ago I completed my first original hair-piece design. I've been tinkering with the design of this for almost a year now. (If you could see "Attempt #1", you would probably laugh.) Finally, I've found a way to wear feathers in my hair without any tedious tying, wrapping, sewing, or anything. It's just a little hoop fixture that can be slipped onto anything. (I clip mine in with a bobby pin.) It's really simple and quick to put it on and remove it. Success!

After finishing it, I wore it in my hair as a test for 3 days. It's just perfect. I love it. So, I took that as a sign to make more and share them with the world. Here are a couple of my latest completed pieces.

Here is a close up shot of the fixtures I create by hand for each of the feather decorations. They are cute little steel coils with hoops on the top.

I'm going to be sharing the full collection of hair-pieces soon. Also, I'm planning to share photographs of how the hair-pieces look when being worn. I have very, very exciting things in the works. I don't want to spoil the surprises, so I won't say anymore!
