Coming off a little rest period from the Materia Cuff commission, some very lovely and magnificent person actually asked me if I could do a fantasy beaded mask blending elements of both my (DFMW) Beaded Chainmaile Mask and Submerging. I could not say “YES” quickly enough.
The basic idea behind the beaded curtain was to hide the eyes while still allowing vision. To my surprise, it worked! I mean, er, to my absolute expertise in these matters. Yes. Ahem. Every hanging strand ends in either a single gold delica bead and a crimson-burgundy freshwater pearl drop, or a light gold Swarovski crystal with a red glass drop. While the front is notably more heavy that the rest, the way the diamond pattern rests against and around the head actually distributes the weight in a way that doesn’t make it feel like your neck is always fighting with it.
All in all, I’m extremely happy with how this came out. Thank you so much to the commissioner for the opportunity!
