This headdress was made possible by a grant from the Jerome Foundation through the MN Textile Center. My grant project was to create headdresses representing the three phases of womanhood.
Bridal Veil is my interpretation of the Maiden phase. White, pure, innocent. At this phase most women don't really know who they are, so they try to hide it from the outside world by veiling their eyes. One look in those eyes and all is revealed.
