Sparkly Things

I’ve been gluing stuff to other stuff lately.

For example:
Sequins + button + hairpin

More sequins, a button, a bead, and a hairpin.

La, la, laaaaa…more of the same, but in a more subtle and refined color scheme. Kind of elegant for being a bunch of crap glued together.

I was going for a peacock feather effect
This is meant to be sort of a peacock feather effect in pearlescent sequins and beads. It isn’t actually cockeyed, I just couldn’t get it to not sit cockeyed on the table and I couldn’t get a decent picture of it on my own head!

Yaaay! Garish!

Yoicks! Even more garishererer!

Ultra pink and flowery and leafy.

This here’s a big, purple, pansie-ish spangly thing.

Super Glue Control Gel is AWESOME
A daisy/pinwheel sort of thing made of old buttons.

Pom-Puff Daisies
Puffball daisies

More of the same, in different colors

I was awfully happy with how this one came out

My first attempt at an origami flower hairpin
She also got my first ever tsumami kanzashi because she liked it and I really do think it looks like her style.

I’m also getting ready to make some new hats. Some more cycling caps, ’cause I’ve been selling those again, plus some girly-style winter hats. I have a design in mind for a gathered cloche that has a kind of yin-yang colorblock effect that will be rather dramatic if I can get it to turn out.
