Artist’s Comments:

Visually: I designed this piece to simply be the most stunning exotic-flower-comment a girl could wish to put in her hair. Not for the faint of heart, this is not so much a conversation piece as a conversation stopper! This will go well in any hair coloring and includes five orchids of four different colors. A wonderful outdoor summer piece, it is also as much a scene stealer at both the smartest and the most informal of indoor winter party occasions. It is something to which everything else will become an accessory rather than being an accessory in itself.

Practically: The size of the wooden background is sufficient to grip with either hand or fingers without risking damage to the flowers, when handling from the back of one’s head out of view.


Our studios are strategically located right in the heart of the orchid growing area of The Orchid Isle – the Big Island of Hawaii.

It is here that only the best varieties of our orchids are carefully selected for use in our creations, each undergoing our exclusive and gentle preservative

Our products are unlike any other – made with real flowers they are permanently durable, pliable and practical to wear. They will not dry out, or wilt; if they are dropped, they do not shatter into pieces; each has effectively been turned into a permanent fresh cut flower. While most flowers change color over time, ours will be retained, softening in intensity, developing a patina over time.

We use mostly dendrobium orchids largely due to their suitable size and strength. The greatest influence upon us however, is the wide extent to which this orchid is recognized and in demand by visitors to the Islands.

Our orchid items are not any conventional form of jewelry or accessory. With every flower item sold we provide guidelines on how to maintain them, keep them clean and best stored when not in use. Our orchids should be held by the metal or wooden settings only, not by the flower petals; they should be stored separately and upright in their original box when not being worn.

Important aspects of our guarantee are in our FAQ’s section of the menu.
