Breathtaking Hair Accessories Inspired by Nature

Garden of Whimsy on EtsyI overheard a conversation on Twitter the other day that got me to thinking. The subject was on artisans that sell hair accessories online and whether it was the product or the model that actually sold the product in question.

It brought up how people shop and I encourage you to consider how -you- shop.

Now, I did a lot of thinking on this since then and I've come to the conclusion that, for me, it's about 50/50. Certainly, if someone has a beautiful hair accessory and they photograph it well, it's going to be appealing to me. I love hair accessories and have a lot of hair to work with. But, that same piece on an equally beautiful model or equally beautiful head of hair? That's a kind of appeal I almost can't pass up.

If you think about it, this could put a lot of artisans out there at a disadvantage if they don't have a beautiful, eye-catching model available.

Today's shop is not one of those at a disadvantage, though. Not only are the accessories you'll find in Gardens of Whimsy absolutely breathtaking, but the woman modeling them is equally as stunning!

Each and every one is inspired by nature from leaf and flower crowns to scatterings of flowers and butterfly wings tucked within flowing, gracefully coiffed strands. This is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful shops I've ever seen on Etsy.

The artist behind all this whimsical beauty is April (a fellow Jane Austin fan) from Florida, who has a dream to one day become a costume designer for film and theatre. And, I have to say that with the quality of work I see in her shop, I have no doubt she'll reach her goal!

the hair ornaments are just lovely. I have short hair and don't wear them myself, but they are beautiful on the model, and yes, I agree, models make a huge difference.
