E 4 in 1,  haven't decided if I will straighten the side out or leave tapered.  Your thoughts?  Will also be adding crystals.

Perfect!  I like it the way it is, especially if you are going to add crystals.  Great work.

I think with crystals it would look stunning tapered like you have it.  What a TON of work and really well done.

Yep, I agree, leave the taper so the crystals dangle gracefully.  Can't wait to see a picture :)

Working on headdresses for this weekend's renfaire tonight, god willing.  I found some gorgeous diamond cut anodized aluminum chain.  I'll post pics when I get a few done.

That is very cool. I don't do Ren faires, etc. etc. but that would be excellent on a 'bad hair' day! ;D

Fantastic work.  The tassels are great.  What are you going to do for an encore?

As if one feat of greatness is ever enough!   Don't listen to Jeanne, her advanced age is making her senile.   :P

You mean there won't be an encore?  I am disappointed.  I thought there would be a suite of armour next.
