Do you love to see your little girl dressed in her best dress hair done perfectly and a beautiful bow to top off her ensemble. Hair bows to match every outfit can be expensive. Not to mention the time taken to find them.
As a Mum of two beautiful little girls who just love to put bows and clips in their hair I looked around for pretty hair accessories. Well made bows and clips were few and far between. This is when I decided to start making hair accessories for them.
My first few orders for quality grosgrain ribbon and alligator clips were from websites in the United States. It was the waiting and waiting for the goods to arrive in Australia that made me start looking for places that I could buy from in Australia. There was not much variety and to find a haberdashery store that carried grosgrain ribbon – well I did not find one.
I have been making jewellery for over 3 years now and my knowledge of buying in bulk lead me to source wholesale items for creating beautiful bows and hair jewellery.
Our website carries over 55 different colours in 9mm (3.8”) grosgrain ribbon. We also carry 6mm (1/4”), 16mm (5/8”) and 22mm (7/8”) grosgrain ribbon and many printed ribbons in different sizes. Plastic Headbands, metal barrette clips and single prong alligator clips are among our hardware items. Padded embellishments and resins will be listed shortly.
If you are looking for some lovely bows, swarovski hair jewellery or the ribbons and hardware to make them yourself come and visit my website at http://www.prettybeadedthings.com.au.
