“Art in the Round” – set by The Three Muses (Bev) this week… she made a very beautiful example for us and I wondered what I could show that was round before the end of the week? I admit to being super-tired this evening, needing a shower and for those reasons, I am sharing this dinky Tiara that I made a while ago for the Midsummer Night’s Dream Fun Day. I don’t think I’ve blogged it before because it was so awkward to photograph well!

It started life as a plain brown plastic hairband. Then I used blue netting, wire, beads and some bits of broken costume jewellery to transform it. I also added some images from Ten Two Studios to make little features – both sides of the cards in the spirals. Hope it fits the bill!!



Ain’t craft wire a beautiful thing?!! I expect that people who read the title to the post will think I’ve completely lost the plot, but if you remember old musicals, you’ll get it… 😉   If you don’t get it, then I really am getting old!!!!

In other news, I took some altered cutlery and a booklet-pendant (otherwise known as a pendant-booklet) into a local commercial art gallery this week – to be displayed, and hopefully, sold!! Here’s a link to the gallery in Bude:

The Seventh Wave Gallery… is that not the coolest name for a gallery ever???

  1. This tiara is beautiful! The details on it are wonderful. Great colors too. And I remember the song, so I hope I’m not aging myself too. 😉

  2. At first I thought Tiara was a type and you meant Ta ra ra boom de aye,,,,but you are far too clever for a typo. I LOVE a play on words, and this is priceless. (I’m old too). The tiara is also priceless…fit for a queen! Thanks for joining in, Rosie!

  3. uh er that’s supposed to read “typo” not type .. DUH

  4. Aw, this is so cute and clever, too!

  14. Rosie, I have no idea how I missed this one because I am (or think I am) so careful to comment on every single entry at the Three Muses. I am sorry that this comment has been a long time coming. I came to see your latest two pictures and I found your Art in the Round piece which is stunning and beautiful. Thanks for joining in and hope to see you back for “hats” this week!!
