New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in North America. It's such a unique place with a fascinating history. It's the birthplace of jazz and the cuisine? Fabulous. While I have never been during Mardi Gras (too wild for me!), I recall seeing tons of masks for sale, often with feathers.
This year's Mardi Gras begins on March 8, just two days away. So it seems fitting to feature the amazing wire wrapped beaded masks by a couple of British artists who call themselves Grin,Grimace and Squeak on Etsy. Their exquisite and often dramatic pieces are truly art. Won't they be awesome at a masquerade ball or fancy dress party? This design duo also create tiaras, fascinators, hair vines and jewelry.
