Fall Harvest headpieace

I have wanted to make beaded flowers, berries and things of that sort for a while.  When I was modifying that dress the other day I got the idea that this would be a good time to experiments with it.

beadwork for fall harvest headpieceI have a few photos of what I did but this really is not a tutorial on how to do this but if you know anything about wire-work and beads you could do this easy enough.  I might make a tutorial later of how to assemble the pieces of this.  But I am not sure on that yet time may not allow for that.  Sorry I did not take any photos while doing the pumpkinesque shapes as I was making them while sitting at piano lessons with my children.

You can see more photos of this project in my beadwork set on flickr.

For a first try not to bad next time I will make the wire match better I wish the wire had been copper or brass in this case. I think the children will enjoy wearing this for Shakespeare week but first  it was made to match the dress I am working on and will be worn to a fall harvest homecoming dance.  Maybe it will be worn at Thanksgiving too.

I am thinking of doing another with snowflakes for winter.
