Funky ‘n Fun Feathers

Remember the day when feather jewelry was all the rage? I do, but then I am getting old and I can remember lots of great trends from the 50s, 60s, and 70s better than most people my age. In fact, those from the “Woodstock Era”, if they were wearing clothes (and some who weren’t wearing much) were adorned with all kinds of feathers and beads, leather wrist bands and belts, and beaded mocassins or leather and wooden clogs. Many of the low-riding hip hugger, wide-legged bell-bottom jeans showed off handmade belts of leather and suede cording with lots of beads and feathers dangling from the fringed ends that hung down past the knees.

As a continuation of our “Blast from the Past” from yesterday, tonight’s blog keeps on going with some more memorable moments in fashion. Paisley fabrics, maxi dresses, and hippie garb were the perfect backdrops for lots of different feather accessories. Whether it was a bracelet, necklace, or hair accessories, feathers came in all colors and sizes and often were the main focus instead of the clothing. Great part about fashion trends . . .  these always return, sometimes with subtle changes but most of the time, you will see some of the same styles, colors, and accessories return. Such is the case with feathers. Last year, we saw feathers in the hair on many celebs. And, mothers and daughters were wearing matching colors or matching their feather hair extensions with their outfits. While the rage for feather hair extensions has subsided a bit, it is still trendy to adorn your hair and other areas on your body with feathers and beads. Here are just a few suggestions from the Divas. How many more can you think of?

The Divas have fashioned a variety of colorful feather earrings and are now in the process of creating unique headbands, hair accessories, and unusual pendants with plumage from some of our fine feathered friends’.

Be sure to check out the Vintage Collection under our Portfolios to see some of the selections we have ready for sale. When you find the perfect addition to your fashion accessories, follow the link to our ETSY Store to make your purchases or CONVO with the Divas to place a custom order.

We also have great specials on feathers for hair extensions featuring grizzly rooster tail and guinea hen feathers in natural colors. All are stylable, curlable, and can be washed just like your real hair.

We invite all of our followers to send us photos of yourself with your favorite feather accessory or wearing a trendy outfit from the past.         Come on now . . .  don’t be shy . . . it’s time to strut your stuff and show off those gorgeous feathers and trendy fashion statements!

If you have some special feathers that you would like the Divas to use in designing a unique custom piece of jewelry for you, please contact us either by using our contact form on our Contacts page or CONVO us through our ETSY Store. We love a challenge and get excited when our shoppers want us to create something special just for them.

White feathers are great enhancements for bridal jewelry, bouquets, and headbands.

Well, darlings . . . we hope we have inspired all of our followers to try something different and add some vintage “blast from the past” to your accessories this summer!

As always, your comments are always encouraged; and don’t forget . . . we love to receive suggestions for other ideas or topics of interest.

Kathy Celebrates Another Year of Blessings

Birthday Blessings

The Grande Dame Diva celebrated her birthday on Flag day with family and artsy moments with the KIDZ Diva, Emiley. Talk about being pampered and spoiled… breakfast in bed, all meals cooked and an awesome cake. We played games when the power went out, watched 2 movies when the electricity was restored, and sketched designs all evening.


Scholarship Fundraiser

So now it is back to work on our newest designs. We will be posting new clothing designs as well as some new School Spirit jewelry for the alumni at Full Sail University. We plan to start a new scholarship fund for future students in the EMDT program so we will be donating 10% of ALL sales of the T-shirts and jewelry for the EMDT grads and alumni during the month of June.

Why June??? Well… that just so happens to be the month Kathy graduated from the Full Sail EMDT program with her MS in Educational Media Design and Technology degree in 2011. Our goal is to raise at least $500 to start the scholarship fund that will help students purchase books or other supplies.
