Crown Jewels

Well, jeweled crowns, anyway, :). The crown on the left and the tiara on the right were made with gold braid. The two in the middle were cut from thin sheet metal. I used tiny nail jewels and larger flat backed crystals to decorate them. I made crowns while watching our football team lose miserably. Kept my blood pressure down, lol.

Oh, and I forgot to tell you all that I lined the sleeves and hem of Ariana's gown in a matching satin ribbon. That made a huge difference in making the gown look rich. I can never seem to get just what I want in one try - I'm always thinking about the project and how to make it better. It usually only takes 2 or 3 tries. :P

Have a wonderful week!
