I did twelve because I figured after all the bother I had with the flowers for my necklace last year I might be lucky and have eight work, so there’s a couple of dodgy ones in there. Next they will be cleaned and mounted to the crown.

Not to mention that you will have spares for repair if it gets damaged by the assorted little princesses!

I think the flowers are the bit most likely to get damaged. I’m going to check the market next week for cheap nail varnish to match these enamels, that way I can do on the spot repairs until more permanent ones can be effected- chipped enamel can sometimes be sharp, nail varnish will smooth it over if needed

These look pretty. It’s going to be a popular crown: you may have your princesses unwilling to hand it back to you without screams!

It will have a full time handler

This blog is solely for textiles, with a little bit of silversmithing now and then, and will mainly be for my historical stuff.
Please do not use my images or pin them without permission.
My interests range from ancient greek to tudor periods, and I tend to be an artisan rather than an academic - not that I don't do research, I just prefer getting my hands dirty.
I dye, spin, weave, sew and embroider, and have been doing so for several decades...
