This week my crown became a crown!
After weeks of visualization, picturing what the center piece would look like once it was attached to a band, I connected the largest element, the head band.
I used thick pieces of wire to bind the center piece that I completed last week to the actual band of the crown.
For the band, I used a very thick piece of copper, thicker than I would ever used to wrap stones. This copper holds its shape very well so it will be easy to size to an individual head.
For its completion, I plan to fill in much of the empty space around the existing wire work and stones.
I want the crown to be more of a solid piece, with less gaps than it has now.
