I think it first caught my eye in the HBO show, Boardwalk Empire.I found myself drooling over the decadent beaded dresses and eye catching hair accessories worn by the ladies of the cast.

Then a couple weeks back one of my favorite shows, The Vampire Diaries, started having flashback scenes to the 1920's. More gorgeous hair accessories!

So, then I had to ask myself my favorite question; "How can I make something like that?" I first took a look at what kind of handmade Art Deco hair accessories were already available on Etsy, and there were plenty of ornately beaded, beautiful pieces. However, I like to offer jewelry and accessories that you don't have to wait for a special occasion to wear. I decided on making some everyday wearable pieces out of polymer clay filigree. I think I succeeded in creating a couple of hair accessories that evoke the feeling of the 20's, while still fitting in with today's styles, both casual and dressy. What do you think? Shall I make more?
