Welcome ! Unique handmade hats and headpieces
In 2010 one of my hats was chosen for the 9th Annual Derby hat exhibition.
I’ve always had a love of hats. They complete an outfit! This hat is so easy to wear and stays exactly where it’s placed. It’s a one of a kind work of art that I am going to enjoy immensely every time I wear it! Wear your heart on your sleeve???? No no no.... I wear mine on my head! With pride, it’s simply stunning!
“Maria made her first hat for me more than 15 years ago. I wear it often – it still looks new. I receive compliments almost every time I wear it. From
practical and chic winter hats to whimsical and elegant fascinators for black tie events, Maria has a great flare for fashion and a sense of what will work for you. Her millinery skills are impeccable and attention to detail extraordinary! "
"Maria has made me the most sensational hats and hair ornaments. All details are beautifully & tastefully executed. Her work is always eye-catching but never 'overdone'. I'm always the focus of fashion envy when I wear Maria's accessories."
"Maria continues to create touchable art in the form of luxurious hats. When I saw her hat that imitates "a splash of water", I was speechless in awe. Amazing! She has a facility with millinery which transcends the mere production of in trend hats. She creates hats that you never thought of and now want to have to wear, even when you know you have no where to go that warrants wearing it.Additionally, her paintings are playful and vibrant. Truly an artist to make the time to google! "
This is a gorgeous cocktail hat for the Christmas season. It arrived safely packed and fits like a dream. I have had many compliments on it already. Beautifully made. Definitely up to Maria’s high standards of design and workmanship.
Everyone I know is Green With Envy over this gem-encrusted kelly green satin beret that I bought from Maria. I am so fond of this hat, which looks arresting with like-minded gorgeous greens, of course, but also pairs perfectly with red and tartan for the holidays. This is my Scarlett O'Hara hat! It is so totally flattering! Swoon.
Unbelievable quality, I adore this head piece and am proud to support Canadian artists. Every stitch of this one of a kind head piece was sown by the design..."
"Sculpture For Your Head
Maria's hats are high art! I love her sculpted pieces like this one that I bought years ago and I wear constantly. It is so chic and versatile, a must for any well-heeled lady."
You simply must have at least one of Maria's unique-silhouetted sculpted pieces in your millinery wardrobe. These things are so darned chic and each one is u..."
" Couture Hats, All The Way!
I adore this hat that I purchased from Maria. It cuts the most stunning profile you have ever seen. This is a true couture hat."
