Tonight I sat down and made a little something that I have wanted to make since I stalked the "I really need a friggin' crown (or other lofty headwear)" swap gallery. I thought that was the cutest swap idea and was sad I missed it!


Anyway, I broke out the spool of safety wire I had and my bead stash and made this mermaid tiara, sea crown of fancy.


The base is about 4 loops of wire, wrapped with more wire and then beads all over the place. For the initial beading, I just strung about 20 beads on and wrapped and wrapped semi-loosely sliding a bead in place every 1/2" or so.


Bead close-up! I wanted it to be messy to hide any mistakes and places where I had to snip wire off and start a new piece.


I'm a mermaid. Thanks for looking!

Aww, thanks, guys! You are too nice!! I've been wearing it since last night. I'm sick with a cold, so I am also lazing around in my fluffy robe. I feel quite regal.

Let me know if anybody is gonna make one, too! I want to see it! Cheesy

So pretty! (And I hope you feel better by now.)

When I saw the thumbnail on the homepage, it reminded me of Deepholm in World of Warcraft (fairly representative image at this link for any non-WoW-geeks; and I don't know the Deviant Art user, it just showed up in Google Images)

It is looking like a princess crown. But it has got an elegant look because of its stones and beads. Hey thanks for sharing these images, we all are inspired now. It really looks much pretty on you.
