handmade fabric flower hair accessories – ornaments to wear…

I am finally giving into my desire to sell handmade accessories. This is something that has been on my mind since last summer, when I became hooked on making fabric flowers for myself and to embellish my Christmas ornaments…not to mention the fact that jewelry making and beading used to be a hobby of mine. I’ve been trying to talk myself out of adding accessories to my etsy shop, for the simple fact that I just don’t know if I can handle making more things, but oh well…willpower has never really suited me anyway… at least not as well as pretty flowers in my hair! And so, here is a preview of the new ”hair ornaments” that I will soon have listed in my etsy shop… The first is made with pink satin and shimmery organza petals individually folded and layered together, embellished with 3 pearls. It is attached to an alligator clip.

Here’s another…turquoise satin and sheer white organza petals, with clear glass seed beads and pearls…also attached to an alligator clip at the back.

And a larger one in black and white…

And here are a few more…the petals are individually singed, formed, and hand sewn, with beaded centers…

And here is a picture of me wearing the first of the pink flowers that I made (of course I am keeping this one for me!)…isn’t it so pretty? Please ignore any gray hair you see…I attribute those to a really stellar dating life. :D

I will be listing these, along with other hair clips, headbands, and accessories, in my etsy shop very soon…please tell me what you think! In fact, I’m working on a red and gold poinsettia clip today, because I can never stray too far from Christmas! Are there any particular colors you would like to see?

Would you like to share this?

    I have an idea for those of us who have very short hair and no way to decorate it with a flower, put pins on the back of some of them so we could use them to dress up a jacket, or to hold a scarf in place. Your flowers are works of art and I would love to wear one…….but my hair is just WAY too short. Please give it some thought. I would even buy a couple to give as gifts to people who still “dress” for work every day.

      Check out my shop on Etsy – hairglitzbysandy.etsy.com. Here you’ll find small clippies that can be worn in short hair, even the finest. My mom [who is 88] has very short, fine hair and I’ve even made clips for her. As a matter of fact, I try out different types of clips on her before making them for the website. If they stay in on her fine hair, they’ll stay for anyone. I also have unique hairbands with miniture dolls that are [if I do say so myself] adorable. I’m adding things all the time so check often. Hope you find something you like. See you there.

    Pat, thank you so much for the suggestions…I will DEFINITELY offer some as brooches and pins, and will even have some purse and shoe clips! Thank you again for the ideas!

    I love your new flowers for my hair!! Notice that I said MY hair?! I have long hair and will certainly be ordering some of these beauties for me and some of my friends…we are Pentecostal and we ALL have gorgeous long hair! I would love to see pink, white, blues, red, and black and white colors. And, BTW…my Secret Sister at church absolutely loved her garden ornament! So did I…in fact, I almost kept it for myself! I can hardy wait to have some of your hair ornaments!

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your blog. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Thanks!

    Staci, Would you sell me a white flower hair ornament just like the 4th one down, only with a small cluster of pearls and/or glass beads in the center instead of the cameo?

    How much would it be, with shipping, etc??? to NJ.
    thanks, Dawn
