Here’s two of my latest headpiece designs. My new collection is inspired by all things kitsch and macabre.  

Feather & Birds Wing Brooches

I’ve been a busy girl making these brooches from broken jewellery, feathers and birds wings (no birds were harmed to make my work, these birds died naturally)

If you are interested in any of these pieces please contact me zaracarpenter.com or facebook 

Best Wedding Invite EVER!!


It’s no secret that I am a massive geek so when it came to our wedding invite all the usual ideas for invites were just not for us. We went to our good friend and the Gandalf of illustration Mr Mark Barnes and asked him for something different. We wanted two designs, one for our wedding in Sweden and one for our party here in the UK, we spoke to Mark about all our geeky loves and BOOM he came up with these beauties…. he is a bloody genius!

How many movies references can you spot?

Please check out Marks website www.markbarnesillustration.com if you would like to commission him to do some AWESOME for you.

Here she is in all her glory, meet Persephone, my new piece of work from the Legacy series.  Made from silk flowers, snake skin, birds wings, snail shells and insects, this piece took over a year to make.

If you would like to come and see her, the private view for our exhibition is tomorrow, Sunday 11th November 1.00pm until 4.00pm at The Horsebridge Centre, 11 Horsebridge Road, Whitstable. The exhibition will be on until 13th November.
