Branch out to Beadmask!

Beadmask Hair BarretteWhile most shops are bustling to prepare for their busiest season, Andrea of Beadmask is recovering from hers. Her unique leather masks are a monster hit for Halloween costumes. This year she rewarded her customers with a virtual costume contest. People were encouraged to submit a photo of them wearing an item handmade by her. The picture with the most facebook likes received a $50 gift card to her Etsy shop!

As much fun as she has crafting masks for fabulous souls, she just can't maintain that pace for longer than a couple of months. Her hands (and mind) need a rest from mask making, so she's fallen into focusing on autumn inspired hair accessories. The burgundy oak leaf barrette leather clip with bronze spiral veins above is just one enchanting example. She also confided, "In addition to making hair toys, I’m excited to play with my beads again. Beadwork is such a meditative art form. It is slow and reflective – perfect for the transition to winter!"
