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. I tell the story with beads.
I used multiple cones in this piece to signify both all types of crones, and then all types of wisdom these crones amplify. I also wanted to add the found objects which consist of different types of stones to signify nature, one of the crone’s greatest gifts is her ability to commune with nature and draw wisdom from those surroundings. The price also includes a stand made out of pine and birch wood.
