I am going on a hair accessory bender this week. I found these lovely hats and hair clips by Binks The Minx on Etsy. I’ve seen them around Brighton quite a bit, but I never knew where they were from. I’m glad I discovered a source. They add a glamorous touch with an eclectic flare. I certainly recommend giving the Binx The Minx shop a view. Additionally, you can find out more about the artist at Twinklebug.com.

I realize it might take a very brave lady to wear a flower in her hair as a fashion statement, but I am just that kind of lady. I know there are many of you out there as well, just like Ms. Katie Wilmore from Thimble Kiss. Her very creative headband and hair clips designs are absolutely lovely. To find more information on any of the products below and many more, please visit the Thimble Kiss site.

I always adore when accessory designers use different patterns and color combinations in their pieces. Such are the designs of the very beautiful products in LaTouchables. Dawn, the artist behind the brand, draws inspiration from her environment and meticulously crafts each piece by hand. Each piece is one of a kind. If you would like more information on any of the pieces shown here, please visit the LaTouchables website.

All the products found on the Beautiful Bridget shop are lovely, but I am especially fond of her scarves. They are an Autumn essential for me, and Kim’s scarf designs look both funky and cozy. That’s all my little heart desires during the colder months.
Beautiful Bridget Designs is a home based studio run by an independent fiber artist. Each piece is beautifully designed and hand made by the artist from her home. All products are produced in a smoke free environment using vintage and novelty yarns.
If you wish to learn more about any of these scarves, please visit the Beautiful Bridget Designs website.

These lovelies by Moxie & Oliver are a fantastic find with Day of the Dead coming up in a couple of months. I’ve seen other sugar skull accessories, but these are certainly some of the best. Each design is made using a very thick, tooling leather, which means that each piece will last you a lifetime. I was very excited when I discovered these. I get very nostalgic when I see sugar skull design, and this is certainly a product that pulled on my heart strings. For more information on any of the products listed here and many more, please visit the Moxie & Oliver website.

The patterns on these clutches remind me of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I am very drawn to the funky color combination, and the very unique bag design. To find out more information on the bags shown here and many other designs, visit the Pretty Little Pearl website. I certainly recommend giving the site a view. All of the products are lovely.

Jerico Santander is an immensely talented digital artist, photographer and illustrator based in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. He has produced remarkable works for companies such as MTV (2007 MTV Movie Awards) and Desktopography.
I greatly admire the level of detail involved in his work. I’ve seen some of his pieces before, but I only recently discovered who the artist was. I am glad I discovered his website earlier today. His illustrations are a true pleasure to marvel.

It’s that time of the year again. I happily spent a few hours yesterday trying to sort out my new business card for this next year. I sketched out a few ideas while sipping some sangria yesterday. I think I have the beginnings of a funky and fabulous card. Of course, I would never have gotten this far without the help of other inspiring designers. Here are ten business card designs I used as inspiration for next years design. You can view these and many more unique designs at one of my favorite websites, BusinessCards24.com.

I absolutely adore Fink’s recycled garment designs. Their style is very bold and unique. I am really crushing on the Carlton design right now. Who doesn’t love Carlton Banks? Designers Karen and Kristen’s collaboration produced versatile pieces that have a lovely vintage flair. They screen print their own designs, and hand sew the fabrics into several garments. If you fancy one of their designs just visit the Fink website.

I was absolutely stunned when I discovered Barbara Umbel’s sea life jewelry designs. At first glance, her pieces seemed too perfect to be actual sea shells. I was amazed to discover she actually uses seashells, gemstones and freshwater pearls found on Pawleys Island in South Carolina.
Barbara’s designs are beautiful, and the creative use of materials found in her environment is very inspiring to me. All of Barbara’s designs are one-of-a-kind, and can be found on BarbaraUmbel.com or Barbara Umbel on Etsy.
