introducing one of our favorite styles… our feather flower headpiece. each piece is a breathtaking marriage of classic elegance and modern glamour.

throughout history, our beloved icons of fashion and glamour have sported feathers and flowers in their coiffures, epitomizing beauty and femininity, and inspiring women everywhere. we all love a good accessory, and what better than soft blooms or regal feathers atop your crown to create an unforgettable look that makes heads turn

we create our flowers with gorgeous feathers, a bit of sparkle and shine, and lots of love. each piece is hand crafted, ensuring that no two are ever exactly alike. we love customizing this piece, playing with size, texture, and color. one of our favorite ways is to incorporate custom wedding day colors and vintage heirloom brooches to create truly spectacular pieces.
