Made EXCLUSIVELY for "Feelin' Lucky", this super comfortable black silk headband, named Peacock Queen, comes with a cluster of trimmed peacock feathers and is topped with a full peacock feather in the center.

Bio
Creator behind Washed Up Mermaid, Katie - age 24, lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, though she was born and raised in lovely wine valley of Napa, California. She has always been interested and involved with the arts. That being singing/music, dance, theater, art, and creating things of her own. She started making handmade headbands and hair accessories in the summer of last year. Ever since she was little she wanted to have hair accessories that a mermaid might wear. Sticking seaweed in her hair when she was around 7 years old seemed like the greatest idea. So she decided to create headbands with shells, starfish, and artificial plants that are normally used in aquariums. Then she expanded into making flower and feather headbands that everyone might enjoy! So when she found Etsy her whole world opened up. "It's like the world's craft fair online!" She was able to create and share her work like nowhere else. She really enjoys what she does and hopes to keep doing it!

Favorite Materials
shells, starfish, glass, artificial plants, feathers

I'm a headband lover, and the looks above are great but somewhat common.
The best site I've found for feather headbands and more is www.andreasbeau.com. They emphasize beauty over trendy, and the results are fabulous.

Brooke said...

I love the sound of waves against the beach, and second to that is rustling leaves from wind.
