i love fitting room

♥Fitting Room♥ "An exclusive and pioneering artistic event, in which the latest in fashion and trend is exposed in a hotel, where each artist will represent and create their own world in one of its rooms. Different artistic disciplines come together in this unique event which provides the best and most innovating national and international panorama, and where artists and designers will be able to present their work in an area of interaction with the public."

Writer, jewelry designer and fellow Etsian, MTuent, was chosen to be one of the fifty designers showcasing at the Hotel Melia in the city of Bilbao, Spain in September. She creates some of the most delectable and surreal jewelry you have ever seen. Handmade from vintage metals, natural gemstones to ancient glass.

Thousands of artists, designers, press and media will attend the Five Star Hotel Melia on September 24th and 25th to take in the showrooms and create a buzz.

MTuent's vision is to showcase her work through a Circus themed room complete with an indoor tent and Two Back Flats Mini Top Hats!!!!

I want to send a gargantuan THANK YOU to the amazingly talented MTuent for including me in this once in a lifetime opportunity and showcasing my work in her "world"! Please join me in congratulating her and sending her successful and strong vibes as she prepares for September!

Treasuries galore!

All of my fellow Etsians have been busy little bees creating to die for collections of art! Just wanted to share a couple of my faves from last week!

Dancing in Paris by Tutus Chic

Tutus Chic creates the most beautiful adult and children's tutus you have ever seen. Everything I love about her work, I love about this Bridal Mini Top Hat. Whimsical but elegant. Bold in style but subtle in color!

Why is a Raven like a writing desk by Glimmering Gems

This is one of my favorite Alice in Wonderland treasuries ever! I think it embodies the mystery that adults love about this classic. Glimmering Gems sells gorgeous gem pendants and displays! (And at a great prices at that!) Le sigh* I never get tired of seeing my Mad Hatter hat.

Thanks to all the amazing artists who honor me by pairing their handmade artwork with mine!

love. love.

Tea Party Mini Top Hat - Part deux

Oh custom orders! You complete me. I had a bridal party order a set of ADORABLE hats for a Mad Bridal Tea Party. She requested the ever classic Tea Party Mini Top hat that we all know and love :

But instead she asked for a white and pink pin stripe fabric. I can not tell you how in love I am with the new spin! It makes this hat even daintier and sweeter. Didn't think it possible.

As if that wasn't cute enough to eat: She requested matching Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum mini top hats for her sisters. The idea to make pinwheels instead of propellers hit me IMMEDIATELY. Once I started making the pinwheels, I literally could not stop.

See why?

I shipped the hats out yesterday and hat to talk myself out of keeping them all for myself! Enjoy ladies!! These are some of my favorites to date!!
