Envisioning Crowns/Tiaras

I have so many ideas in my brain right now. I'm having fun with my magnetic boards.  However, as soon as I envisioned the configuration of these crowns/tiaras, I had to get them done.



One of my Facebook friends asked me if I ever make crowns large enough for an adult to wear.  When I started making them, I was thinking decoration more than function. Most of the crowns/tiaras I've been selling are statue, doll, or child size. Well........I'm still thinking decoration, but, if someone wanted to wear one of these, they could.  Although, I can't guarantee how comfortable they'd be.




I had them on my head, and my husband thought I looked very regal.  They're about 7.25" in diameter.




I painted them both in grey tones.  They're made of metal salvaged from three different items.  A chandelier, a vintage metal basket, and a broken metal frame.




















Okay, I made a little one too.



See ya soon.

Very pretty, Rosemary! They do look very regal. I had mine on a statue until my granddaughter discovered it. Now I have to find a new place to put it. : )
