Civic Flower Crown

The flower power ring (no shame for giving it that name) was a practice run for the silver flower crown I wanted to attempt. A friend of mine left her soul crushing job to pursue her passion for photography, and one of her client’s wore a silver crown that inspired me to make one myself – with flowers. Mine is a civic crown – coming together at the back and worn like this. This was my first attempt so I learned quite a bit – like the entire thing became a heat sink which made soldering frustrating at times. It’s obviously not perfect, but I really like how it turned out.

This week in jewelry class I tried to do something a little more feminine and dainty. I did want the pearls to be the same colour, but the instructor insisted I use two colours. She also indicated that I should make the flowers differ in size next time – I agree with that.



The two colours bugged me too much, so I changed the pink pearl. It is lacking in contrast, but I like the overall blue-ish tone of it better now.
