My First Crown for a Special Lady


These are some pendants, charms, and bracelets I have been working on. Having lots of fun with the mercury glass, vintage papers and old silverware.

I finished up those and had time to finally make a crown for my beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary. I found her at a antique show last year. She has striking blue glass eyes. She a little chipped, faded, and someone tried to touch up her robes, but I love her. I have always had a special place in my heart for the lady this statue represents.
 I was disappointed that her crown was missing. I have been scouring flea markets, ebay, and other places for one and haven't had a lot of luck. I figured I solder, why not try my hand at it. I had some filigree pieces. Not bad for my first crown. A bit bigger than I really wanted, but now that I have the idea I can make another.

Fortunately this crown will fit my Santos Angel. So for now it can adorn this lovely lady, in time I hope to make a more worthy piece.
