This is a beautiful Winter white crown is made from from hand enamelled brass oak leaves, acorns and Swarovski glass pearls and crystals.
This is probably my most wintery crown and features brass oak leaves and acorn cups that I have hand enamelled in slightly different shades of white. I have scattered clusters of Swarovski glass pearls in ivory cream - the perfect shade of winter white - in between the leaves. To add a tiny hint of colour and to break up the white, each acorn cup has a little cluster of tiny Swarovski crystals in Silk which is a very pale blush colour and I have also added the ocassional pale copper coloured leaf amongst all those white oak leaves.
As with all of my crowns, the band is made entirerly by hand from copper and it can be gently reshaped for the perfect, comfortable fit. Once all of the beadwork is complete, the band is wrapped with soft white silk ribbon to cover all of the wire work so that this piece can be worn comfortably as a statement neckpiece or as a headpiece.
The band measures approximately 32cm in length end to end and the max depth of the leaves is around 8cm so this is quite a statement crown. I have added wide sheer silk ribbons to eahc end of the crown in a shade of pale silver grey. The ribbon is 2.5cm wide and about 1.5 metres of ribbon each side folded double to provide about 75cm at each end.
This really is a beautiful crown, it is quite heavy for me as there are so many leaves and details in this design. It would also look beautiful pinned into the back of the hair.
