I swear I only left the studio for a quick
coffee refill or bathroom break this weekend :o)
But I almost finished it!
Thought it could be fun for you to follow along my studio
weekend so I tried to take lots of photos along the way.
The gnarly soldering block...
I started with soldering all the little embellishments
to the silver triangles I had cut earlier.
I found this gallery bezel wire I thought would
look pretty at the bottom of the crown.
Did I tell you I love binding wire?
It adds a little something extra don't you think?
Phew... I didn't melt any filigree wire when I soldered them.
I didn't want super modern straight lines on my crown
so I shaped all around the edges.
Added these cute little guys to hold bobby pins.
Don't want the crown to fall off my head!
More binding wire :o)
Some polishing, tumbling and just a little bit of
oxidization I think will do the trick!
And then I have to flush set all them little stones.
Diamonds? Uhum.. no but I wish!
Small clear and champagne colored
cubic zirconia stones will add some sparkle.
Total of 40 stones... So I'll be busy this week too!
54 days to go....
Enough daydreaming... now I have to get to work!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
