Fairy Ivy Helmet by fairyfrog Fairy Ivy Helmet by fairyfrog
Helmet creation, facing left.

Back when I started my first metal work class, the assignment was "Make a mask, or something to hide your face, mostly in metal!".. then we were released into the workshop and urged to go crazy!

I came up with an ivy framework design, sawed and cut-out leaf and soldered the monster together. I'm still really proud over it and want to use this "Fairy ivy helmet" some day!

Copper, heat-treated to get a colour variety.

This is so pretty! ^_^ For some reason I can see a 1920's flapper chick wearing it to a party.
