05 Jul Crown Jewels
“Give me my robe, put on my crown; I have Immortal longings in me.” – William Shakespeare
There is something about the idea of wearing a crown. At some point we all dreamed of being a princess or a queen, wearing jewels upon our heads. Traditionally crowns are symbolic forms of head wear worn by a monarch or diety representing power, legitimacy, immortality, righteousness, victory, triumph and honor. Not something attainable for most of us commoners, so instead we began fashioning crowns in the form of a wreath made of flowers, leaves and ribbons.
We have found the modern crown, hand encrusted by the fabulous Deepa Gurnani team. Modeled by some of my dear friends: L.A., H.B., & D.R. Beads, crystals, boullion, embroidery, and mirrored disks add just the right touch of sparkle and reign to your head. These aren’t your childhood plastic faux tortoise drugstore headbands. With sexy beach hair and a flowy tunics, a jeweled headband kicks you up to another level, without even trying. When do you feel like wearing a crown?
