The headdress beading is done!



The embarassing thing is that I came up short on beads again. I had to order some more, and ordered 3mm instead of 4mm, so I will be using 3mm for the 'hair binders' instead of 4mm beads. They are a much brighter silver than my previous 3mm beads, so it will still look fairly bright.

1120 6mm pearls
4400 4mm pearls
2900 3mm pearls
4400 tube seed beads
1400 long bugle beads

In the end, I used almost all of the bugle, all of the 6mm, and almost all of the 4mm. There are tons of tube seed beads left, because of the volumes I had to order them in, but I suspect I will need to use all of my remaining 3mm beads on the hair binders.

Here's an attempt at twisting it all together without the rest of the headdress:

It took a while to figure out what was going on with the twisting and draping in the back because many of the exhibits did not display the bead twists correctly. For example, here is one of the exhibits from last year vs. the official headdress:



It looks to me that what is supposed to hang down on the back side got twisted up to the front, and what was supposed to hang down on the side of the headdress was twisted all the way back and pinned up at the center back of the mannequin head, so you're seeing a lot more beads hanging down behind the ponytail piece.

Next up is the hair piece for the back, and making myself a bead loom for those hair binders. We don't have many good images of the bottoms of her ponytails, but it looks like there are at least three layers:

So far, so good! Mr. Green

And yeah, it looks like four binders, but it's true we don't have a lot of references for this. In DAG I can only see two.
