Here is the crown!!!
On each end I attached wire with a crystal shimmery purple bead then paper machéd over the paper maché base with blue tissue paper after inserting reddish purple wire through the 5 holes that the pins created, capturing a crystal bead on each wire. Two slices of shell are also on the center wire. Then I cut out a double layer of the organza fabric that shimmers red-blue. The wires were fed through the fabric and again ended in a crystal bead. Finally, while the glue was still wet on the base, I sprinkled very fine blue faery dust.
Pretty neat, I think!
