April Adamant and Art Nouveau Hair Decoration

April 5, 2017 at 4:22 pm Leave a comment

I am on schedule with birthstone jewelry for April, which is diamond also known as adamant which also means hard (like diamonds) and unyielding (stubborn). Yeah, well, I didn’t buy diamonds, but I have some really pretty Swarovski crystal that will still sparkle brilliantly. This is my newest piece, but at MaggieMakesIt.com there are many other options to honor someone with an April birthday.

I am most excited about two new head pieces I’ve made. I made a whole mess of wire flowers and filled the petals in with nail polish. I wrapped the stems to a hair comb with red Swarovski crystals. It can be worn a little further forward, and perhaps on the side of a French twist. This is the second version of this piece. When I wore it to the Oscars Party, it seemed to be missing something. I remade it, new and improved, with sparklies.

And I’m extremely proud about this Mucha-inspired headband made with hand enameled acrylic flowers, seed beads, and red agate. The main technique is brick stitch, but I used herringbone for the pendulous flowers. Happy April!
