Elven Orchids by JenniferWeiler Elven Orchids by JenniferWeiler
Finally sat down and made something for myself haha! I don't know how many of you remember the original "Elven Orchids" bu I dismantled it as I decided I did not want it as a headdress and turned it instead into a necklace for myself. Used several vintage pieces of jewelry that I deconstructed for and then put back together in this arrangement with crystals and chain and then I mounted several strips of brown leather to it and it ties in the back. Very heavy piece, just the way I like it and my favorite color haha!

Materials: Bronze, Copper, Vintage Shoe Clips, Vintage Brooch, Vintage Earrings, Glass Crystals, Leather

This piece is SOLD.

I love the color combination: the warm golds with the opalescent purples looks great together. And the fine chain mixed with the bulkier metal parts makes a great balance! I liked the headdress too, but this is also wonderful.

Thanks!! This is one of my favorite color combinations so I try to push myself from using it too often but when I'm making something for myself, I usually use it lol. I don't like using all the same materials in a piece; I'm the same way with drawing. The mixed material is so fantastic together! :la:

Yeah, I liked the headdress but I wasn't sold on it so I took it apart. That's what happens when pieces are around me too long. XDDD
