Jet & Sapphire, because I like giving my bonnets jewel-themed names. I really wanted to make an epically Gothic bonnet. The frame I had sitting around for some time, just waiting for something to be made out of it, I finally decided to give it a go since I had a ton of left-over black lace. Ideally, I would have used black roses, but I still haven't found a place that sells high quality black roses. This bonnet features both a ruffle of lace around the head, an ostrich feather, and 3 extra large rose corsages, something that non of my ready made bonnets have had. I really love the extra corsage on the underside of the brim, it really makes it even more decadent. Of course, you can always take the roses off and have a plain black bonnet, as they are all on pin bases.
I've also updated the shop with an Alice in Wonderland themed necklace. I do make a lot of jewelery and I just haven't really gotten around to making any specifically for the shop. This necklace features a portrait of Alice, has antique brass toned chain and findings, and red glass beads. It's a fancy necklace, and the portrait is rather large, but the simple details mean it can be worn when dressed-up, or dressed-down.
Notice something about the back!? I now have little tags with my shop name on them. I'm even more excited about finishing things now that I can put a little tag on them when I'm done! I have the tags in a few different colors, including blue, gray, and a dusty red, so I can coordinate them with whatever it is they are going on. I made these tags myself, with inkjet fabric, it was a pain cutting out the first sheet because I didn't think my paper cutter could handle it so I had to do it with scissors. I held my breath before each cut to make sure I didn't wobble at all! The second sheet, I tried it with my paper cutter and found that it works just fine if I press down extra hard, I'm afraid I ruined my blade though. Oh well, I needed a new blade anyways.
