Asymetric repositionable headband

Editor's Choice - Mar 21, 2016

This design is a prototype, and as such, has a few bugs in it. I gave it a test wear, and the way it sits doesn’t quite work for how I feel it’s supposed to. This is likely because I left the wired on beads, on the band, before I mounted the piece on the band. I think it might be more secure, and sit better, if I were to add a loop on either end of the piece to hold it’s shape and position better on the band. I tried using a tie on design before this, but it didn’t look right. My inspiration for this piece was the section of shibori silk that I used to make it. Everything basically came together around it. The rock in the main bezel is an unknown agate that I was gifted by a fan, and I’m so very happy that I was able to use it for something. I backed this in a durable thick leather.
