I have just received a small order of really cute (and really affordable!!) beaded motifs in very art deco styles.  I plan to find some time to hand sew these onto wide ribbons to be worn as a 1920s style headband for brides and bridesmaids…. fingers crossed I can find the time so that I will have them on display at the upcoming A Very Vintage Wedding Fair.  In keeping with this gorgeous 1920s styling I thought I would put… Read more »
