Delicately hand pressed petals of silk and lace, softly hand manipulated feathers curled to perfection, and hand stitched tulle veils round out Myra Callan’s designs, creator of Twigs & Honey. Twigs & Honey ® is based out of Salem-Portland, Oregon and officially began in early 2008 with the goal of introducing to others, a completely fresh and modern interpretation of hair adornments. Though Myra had been creating artistic pieces and accessories since she was a child, she became inspired to create a full line to the public after planning her 9-8-7 wedding with now husband, Matt.
Myra’s educational and professional background is less bridal and high-fashion than expected with a degree in Geography (M.A.) and an emphasis on Environmental Science, but she believes that this only lends to the unique and organic designs Twigs & Honey is known for. Echoes of her scientific background abound in her designs that are all “experiments” of color, form and texture. With a love for both feminine and masculine attire, a taste for earthy natural forms and architectural structure, and a soft spot for both vintage and modern aesthetics, Myra’s designs are a constant marriage of oftentimes, dichotomous styles. Completely self-taught, Myra continually strives to create innovative and exciting new designs that cater to all personalities. She was commissioned by Ann Taylor to design and create handmade paper flowers for their window displays and accessory moments nationwide. Her first book, Adornments, through Krause Publications and F + W Media is currently available through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. Myra’s new bridal gown line recently launched in the fall of 2012. Additionally, she has been a Featured Seller on Etsy.
