Fit for a Queen

One last thing before I get REALLY serious about working on my new collage figures. Just HAD to make a Crown. I'd love to make a tiara also, but I only have time for one, and with all the very formal functions that I attend I figured a crown would be more practical and I would get
the most wear out of it. The more I work with the glass and the solder, the more comfortable I am becoming with it. After making the Glass Collage House, I felt I would never make another 3 dimensional piece. This crown was so much easier. I'm not sure if it's the construction method or more experience that made it go so much better. I am really looking forward to adding soldered pieces to my collage figures now and have much more confidence to do so.

I LOVE your crown, Ingrid, and you certainly deserve to wear it!! I also love what you've been doing with your soldering, expecially the scarecrow one with the Wizard of Oz charms hanging down. Wonderful! You make what everyone else is making spectacular!
