Our December artist is local MFA of Painting major, Honor Bowman. Honor creates the beautiful hair accessories available at French Knot. Any holiday events coming up? What about New Year’s Eve? These would be perfect for any special occasion. Honor can also create wedding accessories for the bride or wedding party.
Here’s more info on the talented Honor Bowman:
Honor Bowman started Wing Nut Brooklyn Hair Accessories on Etsy.com in June of 2008 as a way to support her habit of buying all the beautiful fabric, costume jewelry, and trimmings she could get her hands on. Since then, Wing Nut Brooklyn has grown from a collection of experiments made at her kitchen table in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, into a fully-realized line of gorgeous, hand-crafted accessories constructed with vintage jewels, hand-dyed silks, rare millinery feathers, Swarovski crystals, and other fine materials.
Honor is originally from the rolling hills of Roanoke, Virginia (the Star City of the South). She completed her BA in Studio Art and English Literature at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Va in 2006. After college, she relocated to New York City, which is her favorite place on earth. While in New York, Honor worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and at a music publishing firm. She recently picked up and moved to Savannah to attend SCAD, where she is currently seeking an MFA in Painting. Honor is a classically trained cello player, a potentially avid tennis player, an obsessive headband-maker, and a collector of all things that sparkle.
