Crowning Glory

An ornamental circlet or head covering, often made of precious metal set with jewels and worn as a symbol of sovereignty.  Or if you are a mermaid or a "sea witch" you would want to wear this symbol of sovereignty, this lovely crown fashioned from the gifts of the sea.


It is my passion, one day, to create such a crown fitting a woman of the sea. Until I do begin this artistic quest, I will look to this amazing piece for inspiration.  This was created by Sherry Litchfield of http://sherrysshellabrations.com/crowns.html.  Her work is lovely and she will do custom work from furniture to "shell phones".  

Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks from swimming on by.  Sea Witch

I agree that crown is so fitting for us mermaids and I hope to have one, one day myself. Since I now live near the beach and have access to tons of shells and thing, Im hoping to make my own one day. My bathroom is big and has high ceilings. Im finding that all my mermaids and things like that look good in that room. Wouldnt a shell crown just be the finishing touch? lol
