Runway Bride!
This is the start.  Her bridal headpiece is made from a slice of a white china bowl.  Trendsetter Bride.

She will strut the Catwalk in her bridal mosaic hair, veil and confetti, stalked by the paparazzi and showered with confetti.  All in a Catwalk Model's normal day, but the thinset and crystal hair embellishments may be a first but at $100,000 a day, it's not a big problem for this haughty, upmarket fashion Diva!

"I suppose the headpiece will help keep the confetti out of my eyes".  I am quite interested how the artist will attach the veil, made out of mosaic mesh, the finest mesh available.....
Crystals and pearls, confetti and glitter will be tossed at the veil by the artist to give the "just married" special effects.  I have not been married, but this fashion show is fun....

Oh!  The artist is threading the NUtulle under the cap and out through a wider cut in the top of the "headpiece".  Glad she is not stapling it to  my head!
Very clever use of a special glue, I must say!

The front frill will be trimmed back later....and have lots of crystals attached.....

The veil mosaic flower for my hair takes shape.  Sandy is a floral mosaic artist expert!  I love the gold edging, Sandy tells me she has done this for many, many years to achieve a special effect on cut china edges and her students love this technique Sandy invented.

Gold wire, threaded through mesh was Sandy's idea a long time's been used everywhere. The mesh "implants" make it so easy to embed mesh wire and other fabulous mosaic additions...lace, shoelaces,wires, beads, leather, feathers, if it can be wired in, it's been done!
To be's time for a photo shoot!
