Faire Treasures Steampunk Ball Costume Contest Loot Donation

Out of the foggy London mist a monsterous airship looms and Faire Treasures arrives, donating a few prized pieces that have collected over the course of their adventures. These intricate Hair Jewels offer a wonderful accent of green or red to any outfit, pirate or aristocrat alike.

Who is behind Faire Treasures?
Kitty, the owner, is a photographer, photo editor, model, jewelry maker, seamstress, and webmaster of Faire Treasures. She strives to make quality costume accessories inspired by history and the fantasies we create from it. Many of her items can easily combine with costumes from the Middle Ages all the way to modern times.

Though currently docked at the Sherwood Forest Faire, their Etsy shop will be open soon again with a wide variety of Hair Jewels, Cloaks and Mini-Cloaks!

Go out to Sherwood Forest Faire and say hello to the crew at Iris Adornments and Apothecary, shoppe 115!
