This one was for my friend Annie, who signed up first. I knew -exactly- what I wanted to make for her, it just took me time to find the time to make it....them (as it actually turned out to be in 6 pieces).
Since she's a red head, I chose to work with browns, greens and beige for hers. I decided I would make her 2 sets of hair falls (one cowry, the other coin), and a set of hair sticks.
|Working through a process of elimination (;|
|Getting started on the cowry falls.|
|Almost done with this set! (: It's a combination of embroidery floss, crochet thread, wooden beads and cowry shells.|
|I decided to get started on the coin falls before finishing the cowry ones.|
|One finished portion!|
|Close up on the hair sticks that I did for her from a combination of stone and wood beads, thread, and pieces from a broken bracelet (: I'm a big fan of recycling!|
|A close up on the two sets of finished hair falls.|
|All three finished sets. Hoping that she'll send me pictures of them in her hair for my portfolio, since I don't put other people's hair jewelry in my hair, even for display (:|
I hope that she likes them!
