Alchemy Mini Collection Winter 2018

When asked by the Etsy media team if I would like to include my Cosmic Beauty Star Crown in a coming Instagram story for a feature they were planning, I must admit I was pretty excited! They said all I needed to do was to take a quick movie with my phone camera. The wheels in my brain were turning all night long & in the morning I knew that there was no way I would submit a cheesy home made movie. I could also take this opportunity to shoot a few new pieces. This would be a perfect time to try a photographer I have been looking at Jen Rosenstein, a native Los Angeles photographer and artist. I met Jen through a mutual friend who introduced me to Jen’s then fiancé and now wife Sarah, who was looking for a crown to wear for their coming wedding.

Along with my favorite hair and makeup artist Lindsey Burwell and our fairy nymph model Brooke Nesbitt, Jen along with Sarah’s help, shot movies and images of a small collection of my new headpieces. Jen was marvelous. She does not just snap pictures, she is an artist & director and we all gasp when we saw what she was capturing in her monitor. Enjoy this new mini collection & the wonderful stop motion video of my beloved Cosmic Beauty star crown on Brook and her darling pixie hair cut! Also don’t forget t scroll down and read quick bios about Jen & Lindsey!

Lindsey Burwell

Lindsey is my go to hair and makeup artist whenever I am producing a shoot for my headpiece collections. Although her makeup is wonderful, I draw upon her ability to manipulate hair. She is an amazing hair stylist and no one but Lindsey can touch my hair with a pair of scissors! She also works with speed and confidence, which is essential at a photo shoot. Lindsey also is a talented calligrapher. I love her free style hand and you will see her work in several of my shoots. Lindsey is my dear friend and she gets along with everyone, which is very important when working with a team. I always sleep well the night before a shoot when Lindsey is on board!
