I was thinking recently about when I first began selling my jewelry a few years ago. Especially the difference from the above two pictures That I took my first day at Market selling under my mothers business to what my booth looks today and how much its changed. If you had told me that first day that I would be branching out on my own and about the world it has opened up for me I would have called you crazy.
Today however I am just too busy being thankful for the doors that have opened and for those who helped me get there.
It’s fair-time again! And guess which steampunker got a blue ribbon for the THIRD year in a row as well as the ribbon for Most Original.
Thanks again for the Pensacola Rock and Mineral Society for allowing me to showcase my jewelry with their exhibit.
Newest pieces. Got a few Halloween themed ones this time. These will be posted for sale soon on etsy.

IT’S JUST RAINING ON MY FACE
The Making of the Card Hat:
Here is a little step by step of how I made my playing card hat.
For those of you who don’t remember, here is how it originally looked.
Step 1: Ripping out flowers
Bye bye pretty pink flowers
The white roses I got were a bit too white against the lace so I did a little tea dyeing.
While I waited for the roses to dye I made the bow that would cover the hole in front of the hat using playing cards and lace.
I then made the bow for the back of the hat.
I still felt it was a bit too plain so I sewed some beads in the middle border of the lace part. (This took the longest almost two hours)
The roses are finally ready!!
Finally I attached the roses using hot glue and painted the middle one red. (With the song in my head the entire time)
Taa Daa! All finished and waiting for the tea party. All I have now left to do is to finish my skirt and I’ll be ready to join the maddness.
Hey guys look I finished my card hat for the Mad Hatters Tea Party!!
The other day I buckled down and finally finished my hat. It took most of the day but look how pretty it turned out. The tea party is in a few weeks. I’ll post pictures of my outfit as I finish it.
Hats, Hats and More Hats!!!!
I thought I would share a new project I have been working on with the talented Kenzey.
Kenzey has recently begun making hats and asked me to “Steampunk” some of them for her. We hope to sell some of them at Geekonomicon along with my jewelry and her aprons. I thought it would be fun to post a few of them.
This was our first one and the one one we have that we are selling so far.
This one is actually mine. Its a miniature hat that she made using the leftover material from my corset. (I have a big one too) I then added the glasses, lace and bow to dress it up. It has combs on the bottom to help it sit on my head.
Here is the larger version that some of you might recognize as the one I wore to Paracon. I haven’t decorated it yet because I like how it looks with just the goggles on. I may change that at a later date.
This last one I actually found at Paracon at one of the Steamunk Vendor booths. It was shoved in the corner forgotten and I fell in love with it. I got it for a steal since it had a hole in in it. I’m planning on removing the flowers and ribbon and replacing them with white roses (with one red) and red ribbon as well as decorating it with playing cards for a mad hatter tea party I’m going to later this month. (I’m going to be a playing card)
I’ve been having lots of fun being a hatter and I’m hoping to do more soon. I’ll post them as they come up.
