This is a brand new design; a Snowflake mask. A perfect, glittering confection to wear to your next masked ball, Mardi Gras party, or just any time you want to feel like an ice princess.

Cut from 8 ounce leather, carved and shaped by hand. Decorated with colorfast acrylic paints in Titanium (bright) white, metallic blue, and bright silver. Sealed with an acrylic clear coat for protection, and augmented with real Swarovski crystals in pale ice blue and diamond-cut clear.

This is a signed, dated, numbered original: "Snowflake #3"

Available only at my online shop, here: [link]

Beautiful!! I can see this on a man or a woman. Would make a great Snow Queen or King costume. :D

I dind't have a chance to comment on this until ow- and I'm glad I'm taking the time. While I'm bias to the content [Snow?! OH YAH!], I have to admit that it still exceeds the artistic beauty in it's simplistic design- you captures the exact minimalist complexity of the snowflake and translated it superbly to your medium. Of course, the additive of the small gems and spirals only enhance the subtly of the expected "sparkle" effect, without being an eyesore or over done. It's a stunning mask.

I have to admit, when I first saw this the first thing I thought of was my countries flag (Canada) with the maple leaf. Though I suppose it's rather ideal, Canada is "the great white north". =D

beautiful! Very stunning, i love the silver designs around the eyes, and the light blue rhinestones on the crown. It reminds me of Khione, the Greek goddess of snow.

Beautiful and unique, a very lovely mask. The rhinestones are a charming touch, and I can just imagine the sparkles they give off when the wearer moves in the light.
