The Opulent Swan

Here is one of the pieces I've recently reworked. She was much simpler before, with just a rose in her hair but I decided to give her a decidedly more Elizabethan/ Renaissance look with an ornate neck collar and beaded hairnet.
My inspiration? I blame my recent devouring of the BBC's, "Robin Hood" as well as my summer trip to London for this :)



That bend in the beak lends itself perfectly to a regal profile, don't you think?
The body and collar are composed of 3 different types of silk.
"Charmed, I'm sure." Haha, jk.
