    This is my Huntress. Lots of Navy blue and gold. Many ostich, pheasant, and chicken feathers with strategically placed gold sequins. The coins add for ALOT of fun!!! When you move with it, they jingle! lol I donated this for a drawing that our store had.

    This is one of my early pieces. I call it the Purple Fairy. The base is silk shantung and it is framed in silk roses and covered in swavorski crystals. It is very simple, but very elegant.

    I don't have a name for this one yet. Oh well. The base is a hunter green chiffon with hunter green satin rope trim around the edge and eyes. The yellow satin ribbon that criss-crosses, brings the necessary attention to the wearer. There are yellow chicken feathers, silk tulips and sheer green iridescent ribbon to accent the sides. Just a few yellow sequins are placed for a hint of sparkle.

    What a fun mask for a belly dancing or harem outfit! This was done for an I Dream of Jeannie costume. The bead fringe is what helps bring you into character and feel a little mischevious!

    These are really awesome. I just cannot get over the huntress mask, I want one. The winner is nice as well.

    Your welcome they are a pleasure to look at, I have always wanted to have a big fancy dress masquerade ball, I was going to have one for my 21st birthday, but I somehow got pregnant before my Birthday and didn't end up doing it. So now my husband and I are going to have one when we redo our vows. (any excuse to have a big party:D) If it is OK I would like ask you for some advise when I start to make my mask.

    Thank you, that sounds great, maybe I could commission you to make one for me or something. We are going to do it for our 10 year Anniversary so its still two years away, but I'll start planing it next year. I'm going to be wearing my original wedding dress, so my mask will be white and beaded. or maybe I should go black? :)

    LOL!!! I love the idea of a white beaded mask! I have some amazing Bridal Lace that I have not used yet and it sounds perfect for what you may be looking for! Keep me posted! :)

    They're pretty spectacular :) Aeon & I went to a 'masked ball' in Venice a couple of years ago which was quite good fun. Venice is obviously awash with masks.

    The Native & Vanity are cool for ladies.... no bloke's masks though :)?

    Wonderful masks! Have you ever considered getting into costume design for films? I'm sure they would put your talent to very good use!

    Two thumbs up!
