Recent Projects – Special Event Hair Accessories and Jewelry

By Maggie Joos

Wow, time is flying!! I can’t believe we are almost at the end of May already! I had some fun putting together custom-designed products for some customers and starting the “Everyday Occasion” line for those looking to dress up a Tuesday.
At the Launch Party, I met Becky, the daughter of a good friend, who needed a hairpiece for an upcoming wedding where she would be a guest. She loved this satin and crystal piece that had an alligator clip backing.

Next up, I received a special request after the potential customer heard my Lake Effect interview. She wanted a wrist corsage for her son’s girlfriend for their senior prom. The young woman is very into being eco-friendly, so I was excited that I had vintage fabric that matched her dress perfectly. I was also able to repurpose a crystal shoe clip to add a bit of bling to the bracelet.
