Pretty peonies all in a row!

Productivity is starting to pick up in the studio. The recent spate of busyness has forced me to get more productive and learn to make multiples of items as opposed to lingering on one piece at a time ( as an artist often does! lol) I find it tough to think in 2's and 3's let alone 8's and 9's but I must pick up the pace to keep up with the custom orders on right now.

Red Bull is beginning to look very attractive at this point ! lol

hope y'all are having an awesome weekend. We spent it putting in our new kitchen in cherry red high gloss! Its very cool.

catch you guys soon.

Lace Delicacy!

This is a piece that I was commissioned to make for a lovely bride to be on etsy. I have never come accross these fingerless lace gloves before and I was really interested in giving them a shot! I really enjoyed working on these, what can I say the lady loves lace! they are the perfect balance of feminine delicacy with a touch of punk bride if you ask me ! Really awesome idea and glad I gave them a whirl. ;)

The Bag LAdy!

I have been working on a new bag for my pal SimplySus on etsy. Sus has another one of my bags and this time we went for froo froo with bells and whistles on, ie all the trimmings. I love how this turned out and I am really growing fond of grey at the moment. *note to self, check out what an attraction to grey might signafy in colour therapy!*

Anybody know?

Tea Couture!

For many of you who know me your already aware that I have been spending the last year turning a pretty normal small irish bungalow into a modern contemporary open plan home. Its been a rollercoaster of events, many bumps along the way (lots of whining) and needless to say the living conditions have been very creative throughout this whole process!!! (insert nervous laugh here)

My mom and dad often visit bringing goodies to help lighten the mood and the other day my mom hit the nail on the head when she brought these beautiful mugs along to have a decent cuppa tea from. Being an Irish lass our tea is very important and over the last month tea in my house has tasted of a variety of things from paint stipper to glue to varnish, you name it my fella has probably mixed it up in one of our cups!!! lol

So the new poppy mugs are making the most gorgeous cup of tea here and everyone is commenting on what a nice cup of tea I make (I don't though, its the cups you see, but shhhhhhh don't tell anyone!) ;)

Sumptuous layers of tea stain tulle sculpt around the the shoulders and sit elegantly up against the neck framing the face! A must for any bride to be looking for that couture cover up option! ;)

Raw Silk Puffball!

I have been working on this ensemble for a client of mine in the studio, its made of hand dyed navy raw silk and is gathered into soft folds at the hem with a puffball finish.

I added an array of deconstructed shabby chicesque blooms on the asymmetrical shoulder which add a couture appeal.

*notice el matching baggo on the shelf to the left!* I love this innocent look.



A Forest of Wonder!

This is the latest custom order that I have completed for a bride on etsy in the shop. I just love how my client wanted to pull the colours from her bridesmaids into the overall piece, introducing chocolate brown and forest green. To me this shows a little daring and a willingness to be an individual! I love that in people. I like to celebrate uniqueness and eccentricity.

New Loyalty Scheme

For a long time now I have tried to look after my clients in the shop. Offering larger orders nicities such as discounts, little gifts etc to show my appreciation for their custom. Its an artists dream to be supported in such way and I always feel really blessed to have return customers. These are the people that continue to come back and order pieces from me, those that really subscribe to my aesthetic. I try to look after these people.

So I have launched a loyalty club in my shop to do just that. With many special offers available its nice to see those that support my work get something back in return. ;)

Pictured above is a cuff on its way to one such client, having spent over 200dollars with me in one order! I hope it makes her feel appreciated.



Tatter Antiquated Underbust Corset.

I have been busy lately in the studio with a steady stream of custom orders. The most recent one being this antiquated tattered underbust corset for an awesome client on etsy. My client is planning on rocking this with a pair of ruffled cotton bloomers! What a perfect client, I just love those that dare to be individual in their approach to personal adornment!
