However I always seem to find my inspiration in song or words. Of course a picture can evoke an idea but the sounds and feelings you get from listening to an amazing track work best for me.
To make this I took a straw fascinator and covered it in black velvet. I then individually sewed each bead and sequin to the base and finished it with perspex rods. I used sequins, seed beads and bicones to create the effect of a starry night. In the sun this really catched the light well.
I dare not add up how many hours this has taken me but its been weeks of picking up sewing a few and putting down just so I dont lose the will to live with it. I hope its paid off and people like it.
