Geneva Miller-Handmade floral headbands

I am delighted to showcase these beautiful hair pieces crafted by hand from Geneva Miller. Geneva is an artist, songwriter, and Victorian inspired gal. I am lucky enough to be sister-in-laws with this lovely person, and be around her creativity and sweet soul often. Here is a glimpse of her dreamy mind and handmade floral headbands.

1.) What inspired you to make your headbands?
Many things inspired me to make my headbands, mainly silent films, old photographs and lovely actresses from the turn of the century. I love flowers in general, so to incorporate that into an accessory seemed ideal.

2.)What are you inspired by in general?
So many things/people inspire me. I adore Victorian and Edwardian Fashions. Everything aesthetic from that era inspires me greatly. I also admire Pre-Raphaelite art a great deal. I especially love the work of John William Waterhouse. His paintings are beautiful. James Whitcomb Riley is another great inspiration; all of his writings are so dreamy. And of course Nature is a huge, HUGE inspiration. Meadows! I wish I could always be in a field of flowers.

3.)Do you have a favorite flower?
It’s hard to pin point a favorite. I love white roses and daises.

4.)Do you have any websites you are showcasing them on? Selling, etc.
I have yet to make a website to showcase my headbands. I am planning to make an online store soon though. As for other random websites floating around, I have a tumblr where I often post pictures on: also have a bandcamp with a few old songs I wrote. I have been working on new material, so hopefully in the near future I will be focusing more on my music.

5.)What other crafts do you enjoy?
I enjoy drawing. Every once and a while I’ll come up with random sketches and ideas. I also love to sing and play music for fun.

6.) What should others know about you?
Hmm, I’m a shy person by nature but I truly have an itch to break out of my shell. I want to travel and meet new faces. I also love my husband and my pet bunny to pieces!
