Giant Dwarf Starlette crown
I first happened across Giant Dwarf several years ago, when our booths were catty-corner at a BUST Holiday Craftacular. I never formally met Sue, the creative behind this beautiful star crown I'm wearing, but I remember timidly perusing her lovely felt cloche creations and wishing I had more than a couple hundred dollars in my account, so I could even consider buying one. Back then, I practically lived hand-to-mouth, putting every dollar back into materials and bills, and I was counting on that craft fair's sales to pay my rent (thankfully, it did). Anyway, though I also ended up being in the same row as her at the Renegade Craft Fair, I was still completely broke and once again missed out on her creations. But Sue herself was so lovely and talented, I began following her online from that day forward. Eventually, my bank account became stable enough to buy a few of her handmade accessories, and I still treasure each one. This starlette crown was my most recent purchase; it was from her last run of these glass glitter beauties.
