We love being asked to do something special and exciting for a friend, the brief ... Sea inspired mermaid crown , pretty, feminine but a festival statement .
Made for our beautiful friend heading to Wilderness Festival last August, we knew she wanted something playful and beautiful.
We used a selection of vintage velvet millinery flowers in a beautiful pale faded pink, that had been lovingly collected from a trip to Newalk antiques Fair. mixed in with our own pretty velvet roses and violas. Adding large pearlescent shells and tiny mother of pearl from the seaside shell shop here in Whitby. Small details of real pearls from an old 1930's necklace collected from a flea market and a few tiny sequins for a little sparkle.
We love to mix the silk and velvet flowers together it gives a really vintage feel to the piece.
She kindly let us borrow it for our Makeup shoot here in our secret courtyard garden, tabby stands among the clematis wearing an original peach hand embroidered Indian dress from The Shepherds Purse. Cira 1973 .
