Fit For A Queen!

Since I have been home sick for so long I have had a lot of down time.
Hearing all this talk about Tiaras on MMP got me wanting one.
I did a little investigating on how to's and came up with this one.

Its my first so I learned a lot from it,
what to do and what not to do.:P ................. but I'm still pretty happy with it. :)

As you know my first love when it comes to materials to work with are vintage jewels.
So this crown is entirely created with vintage jewels.

I'm going to experiment more with making them and see what I can come up with,
and see if I can develop a version that is more cost effective,
but its hard not to totally load these up with jewels.
A crown or tiara is certainly something where less is NOT more, This is a project where you can really go over the top!
hope you like it.
