Friday Finds: Beautiful Hair Pieces

Today I bring you beautiful hair clips/pins and brooches from Marisa Kraiselburd at Etsy shop floresdelsur located in Montevideo, Uruguay.

I love the unique textures her of each of her felt, fabric, and ribbon options, and I picture my girls so loving each of her creations. They are so lovely to wear in your hair or as an embellishment on a jacket. And with free shipping from Uruguay, what's not to love?

I had a chance to catch up with Marissa this last week and ask her a few questions. So grab a cup of tea or coffee, and read on about our conversation below.

How did you get your start on Etsy?
I read of Etsy somewhere on the internet in 2007 and I fell immediately in love with it, but it took me some time to get the courage to open my own shop.

How did you choose your shop name?
We were going to be some friends selling in that shop, so I thought of "Las Flores" (the flowers) as a nice name for us as a group... we, all beautiful women, like flowers :)...
I lived in Patagonia when I thought of that name, that´s why I chose "del Sur" (from the south)
Las Flores del Sur means, complete, Flowers from the South.
Now I live in Montevideo, Uruguay... and it is still south... america! So the name still works for me ;)

If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?
Hm, difficult question! I can think of Venice -where I have already been- and it is so beautiful and unique that I would love to go back sometime soon.

You can also find her in her three Etsy shops (floresdelsur, lasfloresdelsur, and CraftsAndPixels), Facebook, Twitter, and her own Blog.
