This is my second week working on this crown piece. Right now I’m working on building the centerpiece that will go over the forehead.
I am planning to incorporate three or four more stones into the centerpiece before I attach the centerpiece to the wire that will form the headband. By starting with a sturdy base in the center, it will make it easier to build other stones onto the sides.
Over the next few weeks, I will working to start creating a clear shape for the centerpiece of the crown. Right now I know what general arrangement I want the stones to be in, but I don’t have a clear sense for how the wire will end up looking.
This is an exciting project to work with, I’ve never made anything like this before. There is a lot of room for development and creativity. I can’t wait to see where it goes!
