Cherry Blossom Crown or Neckpiece
Handmade brass, sterling silver, or 14k gold filled, and cast paper flower crown, hand dyed and sealed with resin, on a hammered and twined circlet. The piece can also be worn as a dramatic neckpiece.
The petals are made by dipping brass forms into handmade abaca paper pulp repeatedly and allowing it to dry so each one develops a translucent paper skin. They are then hand-dyed, and sealed with resin to make them waterproof and durable.
Each end terminates in several loops, so you can secure it to your hair with bobby pins, tie it on with a piece of ribbon, or just tuck it into your hair. If you want to wear it as a neckpiece, I can add a removeable clasp on request, for no extra charge, though the piece will stay in place around your neck without it.
Choose brass, sterling silver, or 14k gold filled for the metal structure of the crown.
