Hand-cut Origami Pieces are inter-woven and folded together to create this striking inimitable 3D headpiece. The Queenie headdress features paper accents hand-painted in silver and copper tones, glass facetted crystals in a variety of cuts and sizes and ivory glass pearls that shimmer along side an array of bugle, bicone and seed beads . It is extremely strong and rigid, but remains light and easy to wear.
The pictured headdress has been made from vintage book pages with key accents painted Silver and Copper, but as each piece is handmade to order, the Queenie can be made in any paper/colour you wish.
The headband is finished by wrapping it in soft merino trim, the colour of which can be matched or contrasted with hair colour to suit. The piece is a perfect accompaniment to Klaire Van Elton’s Paper Flower Bouquet Collection.
The Embellishment measures 18cm long & 8cm wide at it’s longest points and will be presented in a beautiful gift box to treasure forever.
