Floral headdress

Originally pieced together as a final flourish for my evening gown during the Independence day gala, to represent the two colors of the Finnish flag (and add some white as contrast to the blue dress). I’ve embellished it further with some beadwork, (1mm diameter) woven in some glitter-coated branches and berries to add character and volume to the headdress. The finished result reminds me of both Frida Kahlo’s trademark hairstyle (ribbons woven into her braids, piled high on the crown of her head) and a forest nymph - an unlikely but intriguing combination!
