Garden Party Commission
I had a fun request from a client looking to up-cycle her wedding tiara and veil into a fashionable and functional piece that she could continue to wear for events. This floral piece was one of two created for her to match a gorgeous dress for a garden party. The base is a cream sinimay teardrop, with an off-white bird cage. My client works for a company that uses fibre optics, so we had little fun and incorporated sculptured fibres as the centres for the magnolia silk flowers. The piece is finished off with tropical and geometric shapes created with hand-dyed and styled feathers. A silver wire and pearl branch is a delicate sculptural element repurposed from her bridal tiara.
