Rustic Flora

 I am fascinated that the tiara practically matches my hair color, at least in this picture. This is a rather grand piece, very large, but because it is in brown shades, it doesn't stand out quite so much as a red or gold colored tiara. It is composed quite simply out of wire, silk flowers, and beads. The whole piece was sprayed in dark bronze metallic paint, and I hand-painted gold/orange acrylic paint on top to bring out the details of the silk flowers and decorative beads.
Its slightly asymmetrical look evokes the essence of a woodland fairy sprite, flitting from tree to tree, hiding from enemies and finding luscious berries to eat.
