This Just Arrived: Albino Peacock Feathers

Just received a huge shipment of rare and beautiful white albino peacock feathers.

They look great on bridal hats!

Peacock feathers are 'harvested' without harming the birds, when they molt (shed their feathers in preparation for growing new ones) naturally, once per year.

As you can imagine, albino peacocks are rare. Rarer still are the number of people who own one who are willing to go through the trouble of collecting and selling their molted feathers. Being a materials geek, I love anything gorgeous and unusual, so for the last two molting seasons, I have bought almost all of the albino peacock feathers available on the open market.

Fall Sneak Preview

My first batch of fall ladies hats are now on sale at ADS Hats and Dark Garden in San Francisco. Frilly, feathery cocktail hats, and super swank new top hat and bowler styles coming up!

Rock N' Roll Bride

I got a nice mention in Rock N' Roll Bride, for the work I did on Conor & Caroline's wedding.

Thanks to photographer Julio Fonyat for the fantastic photos!! See the rest here.

Sweatbands have arrived

Received my super luxe new sweatbands today. I swooned! Half in black, half in a dark cinnamon brown, and printed with my logo in silver foil. They're gorgeous.

Finished two mens hat samples tonight, more tomorrow. Photos next week!
