Here is a comb I was recently commissioned to make for a friend as a gift for her sister-in-law. Commissions are my favorite assignments; I thrive on personalizing things for specific individuals. The recipient in this case has reddish hair, and appreciates a flash of bright color. I incorporated a cameo because it reminded me of the couple who commissioned the piece.
According to my friend, the cameo resembles her sister-in-law! My personalised work seems to somehow magically blend in perfectly with the wearer’s style and personality; I truly think this is where I excel. These are the times when I follow my instincts and it works.
Here’s a full-sized image. I just had to get these shots quickly since I had to run out and deliver the piece. It’s comprised of pheasant, peacock and misc bird feathers; some were manipulated and curled. I also incorporated vintage gems and beaver fur.
And here is another picture. It is so ridiculously hot in here and I can’t think. Words hard.
