It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Wedding Wednesday Etsy Find. We’ve been busy in the midst of wedding season as well as portraits and then just living life. Editing images has taken over my life (as well as making programs for one of our couples). I had a goal of getting one posted this week and not skipping it and it’s still early enough on Wednesday to check it off.
As some of you might know, I work part time a couple days a week part time at Chantilly Place, a bridal salon in Lowell, MA. Anyway, we’ve recently had some brides coming in looking for more headband style hair pieces. We have a few small ones in stock and the catalogs we order from also have a couple styles, but nothing really fun and over the top. This led me to search etsy to see what I could find. I came across the shop Bethany Lorelle. She is based out of Minneapolis-St. Paul area and has been creating head pieces since 2000, in 2008 she expanded to offering her pieces on etsy. She is quite well known in the Minneapolis area and has her work in several local stores. If you aren’t in the Minneapolis area, no need to worry etsy has brought her to you!!
Bethany writes: “When creating all my pieces, my aesthetic for bethany lorelle, is inspired by the heroines of Jane Austen (who felt the empowerment of their own inner beauty by adding a simple ribbon), 18th-century France (a time when even a short walk to the market was a reason to accessorize), and the decadent glamour of Old Hollywood (Hepburn). My greatest joy is creating adornments for clients to treasure and pass down for year’s to come.”
Head on over to her shop and check out what she has. She even has some great options for bridesmaids. You can also view more photos on her website www.bethanylorelle.com & find her on twitter (@bethanylorelle) and on facebook
