Ododo Originals

I created Ododo Originals because I’m a hair accessories junkie, but I could rarely find good quality, truly unique pieces to purchase in stores. So I decided to make them myself. I started off a few years ago, altering silk flowers into hair pieces, but I realized that that wasn’t quite what I’d been looking for. I came across the art of flower beading which intrigued me because with all the shades of beads out there, the possibilities were endless. After several months experimenting with wires and beads sizes and various tools, I ended up with the flowers I sell. They start off as piles of loose beads and spools of wire. I’ve developed several patterns of my own and I braid the wire and beads into a flower shape. “Ododo” means flower in my native tongue.
