Gee Wiz! jewelry and hats

I'm Laurel Friedlander, the creator of Gee Wiz! jewelry and hats. I am a wildland firefighter but went to sculpture school in Virginia and have lived all over the country making art and fighting fire. I grew up with an artistic family in the blue ridge mountains of Virginia and since then I have worn fun and creative outfits and now make accessories that are in that same youthful free spirit.
I make fascinators and headwear out of vintage beads, fabric, feathers and whatever I can get my hands on using old millinery techniques and hand beading. I use old thrift store toys to make tiny diorama jewelry with bits of trim and recycled leather. I am obsessed with mid century design, fashion, big kid dress up, lots of color and am influenced daily in my life and art by these!
Thanks for supporting Gee Wiz!
