Smirligans Interview and Feather Earring Giveaway!




See below for how to enter the giveaway!!

Our local artist Heather of Smirligans was kind enough to sit down with us and tell us a little bit more about her fabulous and fun vintage feather earrings! Read the interview below and enter our giveaway to win a beautiful pair of black feather earrings accented with drop green beads.

SEED: Can you give a brief description of what Smirligans is all about?
Heather: Smirligans is vintage inspired accessories hand made with local feathers.

S: How long have you been at SEED?
H: About one year now.

S: How is Smirligans eco-friendly?
H: I use feathers from local farms either on the central coast or my husband's family range.

S: How did Smirligans get started?
 H: I have been collecting vintage clothes and accessories for fifteen years and crafting my whole life.

S: Where do you find inspiration?
 H: I find a lot of inspiration from the 20's, 30's, and 40's for my headpieces and from the 60's and 70's for my earrings. Each piece has it's own modern twist to it as well.

S: Do you sell Smirligans anywhere else?
H: I do. I sell on Etsy where my main focus is custom wedding headpieces, but I love selling locally the most because I get to see people around town or at shows wearing my products. It's very gratifying.

S: Any advice for those looking to start their own business?
H: Do something you love! Make a product that you would make for fun  to never lose sight of your reason for starting a business.

S: What do you see in the future for Smirligans?
H: I would like to expand the brand to the central coast and continue to create beautiful wedding accessories.

THANK YOU SMIRLIGANS!!!
