What We All Want -- Our Own Custom Crowns!

I am involved in a fun swap with a group of talented women. We decided that we needed to make something that was fun, quick, used materials from our supply stashes, and would be relatively easy to ship. Why not make custom crowns??

The artist I was to make a custom crown for is Tammy Strum. If you are unfamiliar with this popular artist you can see some of her pieces at Light and Shadow Studios. She is well-known for her whimsical moon sculptures and ornies.
How lucky for me that I had such an easy assignment! Of course there would have to be a moon, stars, and sparkles. I even got to sculpt a moon for the front piece - in Tammy's signature style - and gave this little moon its own crown and rhinestone eyes. Then, got out my glitter, my sequins, my pom-poms, and tinsels.

After I made it I still had almost 2 weeks to "test" wear it - LOL - around my art studio. It fit me soooo well.
Of course, the time came that I had to send it on to Tammy for whom I had made it. She has let me know that it arrived, so I can now share pictures with you.


The artist that is making my custom crown has let me know that she is trying something different (after all, it is for me and I am a bit different!) and will be mailing it soon. Ohhh... I can hardly wait!
My noggin is feeling a little naked.
