Crown hair accessories

It's baseball season, which means I spend a lot of time thinking about my favorite team, the players, and their stats.  So I recently made a few crown accessories to go with my Royal obsession and wear to the games.


I'm still trying to figure out what I keep and what to list in my Etsy shop.  I'm not sure anyone else would be interested in these things.

I made the crown hair comb/hairpin/tiara by sawing out the crown shape, soldering on some textured wire, and giving it an oxidized finish for contrast.  I am ridiculously happy with this thing and can't wait to wear it to a game.  (Figuring out how exactly to wear it is my next task.  I may end up pulling the sticks straight...it all depends what works best.)





I also made a couple of teeeeeeeeny tiny crowns to run a bobby pin through and wear.

Here they are during fabrication; I tried a couple of little loop designs for the pins to go through. They both work!


And here is one of them attached to a pin.  See?  Tiny.
