They allow me, as a Milliner to be as creative as I like. There are so many materials you can use and sometimes you never know what you are going to end up creating. And then after you have made this wonderful piece of Art it is popped on someone's head like the best display stand ever, for people to wander around wearing for others' to admire!
I began my Millinery journey in 1994, doing mainly Bridal pieces. I did a silversmithing and jewellery course to learn how to make matching jewellery and headpieces. A few years later, due to popular demand I started making Spring Racing headpieces. I ran retail stores for almost 30 years so had a good avenue for selling my pieces without any trouble. I eventually became a qualified Milliner in 2012 after doing a TAFE course with Rebecca Share. My daughter Cessiah Alice also attended with me and we have since attended many Millinery Forums and Classes to advance our skills.
I recently sold my last Store, Ruby and Leo and run my business from a home studio now, surrounded by all the things I love including 3 Furbabies!
