Brand new for Spring 2020 are these little pieces of millinery history; I bring you the Nautilus headbands and they are in stock now!
If you’ve been following my blog series on the Nautilus technique so far, you’ll have seen I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. And these headbands are no exception!
These are a wonderful way to own a little bit of millinery history and would make a unique gift or glorious bridal headpiece. I could mount these shells on a comb and in combination with a birdcage veil, these would be perfect for a vintage inspired bride.
(I should probably add making a sample of this idea to my to-do list!)
There are currently 3 designs of Nautilus headbands now in stock, however I do have more to photograph. Easier said than done as this ribbon ripples in the light! I will be adding those to the shop in due course.
Aside from the colour of the ribbon and beads, each of these designs is subtly different. By using different widths of ribbon I have created different size shells.
By combining the shells with different feature points, I can create more oval or more scroll-like shapes. Who knew these shells could get more swirly!
However, I can also make these headbands in custom colours of both ribbon and beads. If you would like to have a chat about this, please do get in touch.
I have just sent my first bespoke designs to a client in Slovenia, I hope you like these designs as much as she does!
