We are re-defining who we are. The definition of “couture” according to the Miriam Webster dictionary is as follows: Definition of couture 1: the business of designing, making, and selling fashionable custom-made women’s clothing This statement applies to who we are and what we do. EVERYTHING we do is custom made, from our Champion Tiaras down to our bows. The only thing that we resell is wigs. When you order something from us, you will have a personalized one on one experience. Everything we make is one of a kind to your specifications: size, color, design etc…. We are now […]

Hello everyone! The feedback has been great so far! Keep it coming! There is still another free set of buckles that I need to give away! Original post: I need feedback from the Irish Dance community. I see both elastic and metal buckles. Which do you prefer? What kind of stones do you like? Big sew on squares or circles or smaller glue on Rhinestones? What color? I know AB is the hot color, but what other colors do you like? The first to respond will get a free set of buckles in the preference of their choice! Please respond […]
I’m a pretty busy lady, but I try and keep up with what’s going on in the world of Irish Dance style because it changes daily. I’m seeing a lot of lace strips and cut-out embroidered work. I don’t like following trends unless it’s fun and I can improve upon them. After some testing and some failures, I’ve created a process to make extremely delicate embroidered cut out flower strips. What makes mine more unique is that they are so delicate, they look like lace, but with a lot more definition and color. Also, like my lace, they have embroidered […]
Which one is the Swarovski? If you chose the heart, you’re correct. You can still tell the difference, but as time goes by, it’s getting harder. If you google “The Rhinestone Guy”, he has a great blog on Swarovski’s. I don’t normally use Swarovski’s in my designs because I want to keep prices on my tiara’s down, but if a customer specifically requests them, I will, but at an additional cost. Recently I DID get a request to use Swarovski’s and since it had been a long time, I had to check the costs with my suppliers. The average cost […]
As a consumer, I normally never buy the lowest cost item because I am immediately suspicious about it’s quality. When I was a TCRG, I charged less for my lessons. My husband would warn me about the same philosophy, people may not take lessons from me because they’re the cheapest around. I am constantly being told by friends and customers, “You don’t charge enough for your work!” It’s a valid point, so why charge less? Here’s why in a nutshell: Irish dancing unfortunately has become an expensive hobby. It’s getting harder and harder for families to afford it. I PASSIONATELY […]
We are open for business during the Nationals. These lovely tiaras got shipped off to some of the dancers who are competing. We can make your dream tiara too.
These are posts from my etsy shop. 5 out of 5 stars “Beautiful headpiece for Irish dance! I asked for a custom order to match her dark green and gold dress and it came out even better than we hoped for! Customer service was fast and friendly, and my daughter is so happy with her headband. We’ve received a lot of compliments as well.” Irish dance sparkly puff flower headband with AB and color Rhinestones. mich11680 on Mar 2, 2018 5 out of 5 stars “This hair clip is so beautiful!” Embroidered flame flower embellished with matching Rhinestones Kirsten […]
I got a lovely review from one of my customers. I couldn’t figure out how to forward it from etsy, so here it is. I also changed the picture to the actual product I made for her because etsy wouldn’t let me do it. You can see the original review on my etsy shop.
We are going bigger and wider with our tiaras and headbands at the request of many at the last feis. Check back on our website and etsy shop to see our new products. It’s really hot here at home so I might as well make more of them.
