Leather Mermaid Crown by Beadmask Leather Mermaid Crown by Beadmask
This original leather headpiece was hand crafted from premium tooling leather, and painted deep indigo. Washes of iridescent sapphire blue help to highlight the tooled scales. A series of vintage glass stones crown the forehead, surrounded by glass seed beads in shades of pale periwinkle, sapphire and cobalt.

The sides of the crown have a fin-like shape, and the outermost edges look like crashing waves. Rivers of seed beads cascade from the temples, and create an elegant frame for the wearer's face. All of the beadwork is hand sewn by me in the US, using high quality beads and stones.

Very cool, although I find it ironic that it's made of leather, seeing as how a mermaid would rarely come in contact with any land animals.

LOL, I hadn't thought of that... although there is fish leather too. Don't know that I'd want to sculpt with it, though -- I'd imagine that it's stinky.

Interesting observation! I'm currently working on a commission for a dragon headpiece, and the client asked me to use this piece as a base/reference point for the design.
