Latest Commission Piece

I was very lucky to get the chance to try something new with my latest commission. I was shown a picture of her 'Pack of Card' inspired jewellery and I also remembered that she loved the new Alice in Wonderland movie. I didn't want to do something obvious but I loved the idea of using a heart shape and incorporating the swarovski rhinestones that feature on her necklace and earrings.

So this is what I came up with. The heart is blocked in sinamy, padded and then covered in a cotton fabric then each swarovski rhinestone was individually glued into position. I've never used hot-fix before and I was super happy with the results. I also attached red shaped turkey feathers and its all sewn to a plain black headband.







The great thing about this headpiece is that it quite subtle in natural light but once under the disco lighting it will shimmer and shine!
