Back from vacation and wanted to catch up on my inspiration for the August Moon and forward some photos. Box G for August - Litters Alters was for Peg. And what better way to celebrate Peg than with a crown for the "Queen of Possibilities".
Thought of using these crystals from Egypt that I purchased many years ago at a Tacoma bead store. And decided to only use the round one's on the end of the copper chain.
I used copper wire to make the crown frame, then I thought adding the copper mesh for the background would add dimensions. Cutting several points into the mesh wire, I added pearls to the tops and strung vintage Czechoslovakia seed beads in-between. Remember these, Peg? Way cool, love them.
Using a small fused glass piece from the class I took earlier in the year, it became my focal point in front. What better way to adorn the Crown than with Pearls & Peridot (August birthstone) beads. So I chose different points to add sparkle.
Then came the hard challenge of the background. Had to have the royal color, so I used a pearl lavender paint over the card stock. When you look at it you'll see the pearl essence come out. To make sure the crown would be sturdy enough to hold it's weight, I used copper wire and made a box G shape and wired it across in several spots; then wired in the crown.
Hope it doesn't interfere with the (2 F spots).
Check out my sunflowers! Going full tilt in the south side of our house. Sorry the kale was eaten by some green worm, tried to save them, but it was too late.
