I wanted this hair stick to have the feel of a edgy hair bow, but with a serious noir steampunk flair. Just the perfect thing to wear to that midnight tea party!
I hope 2016 is amazing and filled with joy for all! Oh, and full of tiaras too of course, and moments that are tiara worthy as well.
I was so pleased with how this tiara came out that I had to glorify it with an over use of graphics! Yep, this is exactly what happens when I'm bored and start playing with my editing programs. But that's ok because the tiara is still adorable, and is totally worth the grandiose praise.
I finally have a little time to finish up my Halloween decorating, and work on a few orders. I'm watching the origins of Halloween on the History channel, and nothing gets me more into the festive spirit than that. So here is my new favorite tiara with my favorite owl all dressed up for HALLOWEEN!!!!
I've been watching the movie Labyrinth quite a bit. So I'm sort of on a dark Fairy kick lately. This tiara was absolutely influenced by that. I dearly love how the crystal in the middle swing freely as you prance about the room.
I've been working on this tiara for awhile now, and I just LOVE the way it turned out. It remind me of little little spiky flames shooting from your enlightened head. But, in a very elegant and sophisticated fashion of course.
I'm super excited that I finally made it through summer to another Fall season wooo hooo!!!! And to celebrate I had to make something fitting for the occasions. Behold.... my flying bat hair comb. It's just so cute!
This piece was originally based on the La Llorona legend. There are many versions of the story, but the most basic one involves a woman bathed in a watery blue light sobbing at the loss of her children. And if you hear her crying or are a little child who looks like her lost children she could come after you, (the legend is much more complex than what I am explaining it here). In the area I grew up the legend was always whispered about in Spring and Summer. The closest I came to her was there was a small shack near one of my friends house. I think it was an equipment shed for a near by farm out in a field. One night while talking about the legend we just happened to be looking in the direction of the shack where we saw a mysterious blue light in the middle of the night. A couple of weeks later a story about that shack appeared in the paper with the La Llorona legend attached to it. But once I delved into making this piece the idea of her morphed into a time when she was happier, before her tragedy happened. Maybe around the time of her wedding, hence the veil, and lovely purple flowers, yet there is the foreshadowing blue hue creeping out from the corners and over her face like an ever present looming sadness. I have to say I had so much fun making this piece. It really consumed me for a very long time.
I am taking full advantage of this beautiful day by working on a few new tiara ideas. This one has a sort of dark fairy motif going on. My porch has been surrounded by huge firefly and butterflies this whole month so I'm guessing they are rubbing off on me.
Finishing up this sweet little hair comb on this beautiful afternoon.
