As it is my life goal to be some kind of magical forest mermaid queen, it seemed only fitting that I should have a crown (or several). So I set to work with some shells and a tiara base, and ended up with two head adornments worthy of a mermaid.
The first mermaid crown I made is a tiara style, with several tapering shells pointing upwards, bigger shells as accents, and a mass of smaller, colourful shells finishing the whole thing off.
I love how this one looks but I haven't been confident enough to wear it outside the house yet. I hope I do though because I think it is rather beautiful. I'm hoping to get mermaid photos in this crown in future.
It adds a subtle mermaid touch to my outfits. You can see me wearing it out and about here.
I also took this mermaid crown to Brighton and wore it several times when I was there. It looked right at home on the beach.
I want to make some more unusual headgear, I'm currently working on a crystal crown. I also feel the itch to make more shell encrusted objects-I can never have too many mermaid themed accessories!
