In addition to providing hair and makeup services, we proudly provide our brides with custom, handmade hair accessories.  Do you have a family heirloom that you would like to incorporate into your big day? Perhaps you would love to honor your mother by wearing her vintage hair piece but it just does not fit your modern day dress or style. Opal Artistry can incorporate certain elements from that piece and mold it into a piece that is made just for you. We promise you that you will not find our unique pieces anywhere else.

"I had Kathryn create my hairpiece for my wedding, and could not have been more pleased with how it turned out, she took my vision and made it come to life! I wanted to incorporate my late-grandmother into my special day by using a family heirloom, a large Zircon gold ring. I had the blue gem stauer from the ring and used it to inspire the rest of the hairpiece. Kathy and I shopped around for other vintage jewelry to incorporate into the final piece. My grandmother's gem was my something blue. My hairpiece really inspired the entire wedding."

"Kathy designed a beautiful handmade headband for me for my wedding in September of 2013.  I knew what I wanted, but couldn't find it anywhere.  Well Kathy took me to a resale shop and there we found a lot of beautiful jewelry (necklaces, earrings, bracelets, hair pins, etc) but they were either  missing a pair or missing some stones in the jewelry.  Kathy brought all the little jewelry pieces and a month later made it into the most beautiful headband I could ever imagine.  I was amazed and forever grateful. She has an eye for these things and is a natural artist! Thank you Kathy."

"When shopping for my veil, I wanted something unique. Despite looking in multiple bridal boutiques, I couldn't find anything that felt right. Kathy was able to bring my idea to life in a way I didn't think possible.  Not only did I have the veil I wanted, but it was extra special because it was a reflection of my personality and look - it let me be me on my wedding day."
