Another goldworks projekt

The first weekend in june I'm going to Haderslev to Hertug Hans Festival. And I'm going to emake goldworks. Finally I've desided to make this pattern: http://scrap.oldbookillustrations.com/post/347067676/hunting-hood . So fare I have transfured the Pattern to paper, made all the holes. Next I have to prepare my red velvet, and get it in my slate frame.

Medieval headgear

I have been working on a crispinette for my medieval dress. Along side renovating my utilityroom. Today it was raining so I had time for the crispinette.

I used a golden wire, that I twisted by hand and some golden hollow effect wire. I made the shape over a big spoon with lots of tape and sewing thread as gide lines.

Sorry this image is a bit blured. when ever I had a crossing I used my wire to merge the two.

Then I found a n old wig and made braids. They are woven to the crispinette with the golden wire.

And then I found some pearls in my little pearl drawer, Again I used the golden wire.
Now I only have to decide If it's going to end up as a crispinette or a tressore crispinette.... and finish the other one. nearly there!
