The Queen of Hearts, She Made Some Tarts

This is a remake of a tiara I made last year around the same time. It has a central heart element that I have handmade out of cardboard and painted red. Black wire acts as a support behind the whole tiara, and tendrils that I have painted gold spring up out of the tiara base. 

A silver-tone watch face is affixed to the middle, and handmade polymer clay spade beads are positioned on either side. Glass beads surmount each space, and an acrylic bead tops the heart. 

Such a beautiful tiara, I amaze myself sometimes.

Polymer clay is inexpensive, and is an awesome medium to use when constructing handmade jewelry items.
