I found these pretty hair combs and circlets recently and have been enjoying their simple beauty. The delicacy of the honey and champagne tones make them perfect for weddings and the waxed flowers are just lovely to see as is the fine threading and wiring.
They inspired me to see what I had squirreled away in the studio that might lend itself to being wired into a circlet and remembered my gum nuts and dried seed pods. I found some eucalyptus leaves and a length of vintage lace that once wired together made this atmospheric hair piece.
Finally after an early frost I decided to inject a little antique white to the palate. I love making one-off hair decorations particularly with fresh flowers and herbs yet sometimes the dried elements have a completely different atmosphere; sun bleached and frozen in time that is just as valid.
