About DIB

Hello and welcome!

My love for art and design has held high with me since I was very young. For over 25 years my folks were entrepreneurs in the antiques and fine art business. This has been a wonderful influence as it helped educate me in art and design. In High School I majored in art which helped lead me to my passion for creation. It took me many years to discover that perfect something which I truly enjoy, creating my blooms!

Most of my blooms are inspired by the traditional Japanese art of Tsumami Kanzashi, showing a more modern emphasis in various colour, texture and design.

Recently I have created a new style of bloom which I like to call my 'shabby chic' collection. They have more of a tattered 'shabby' look which gives them a unique texture and design.

Each bloom is made with great care and shows precise attention to detail. A product called fray block has been added to prevent fraying and will help preserve your bloom for many years to come. These beautiful pieces are sure to please women and children of all ages!

Blooms can be adorned as a gorgeous hair piece, clipped onto a lapel as a brooch, attached to your favorite hat, belt or handbag. Blooms also work wonderfully for bridal wear, boutonniere's, graduation wear, formal wear and as gifts for bridesmaids. They can beautifully accessorize almost anything!

All Blooms can be made using your choice of the following -

Alligator Clip (Regular or Large)
French Clip
Earrings (French hook, post or clip on)
Clip on for shoes or other accessories

Personalize your very own Bloom -

You can either purchase from my pre-made Blooms or place a custom order. If you'd like a different colour or material, a certain style, if you'd like certain embellishments, or even have a favorite flower (tudor rose for example) that I could recreate, I'd be excited to design something personalized by you for you to enjoy!
