The "Bubble Head Dreamer" Hat And Few Words On My New "Sanctum" Collection.

 There are some millinery designs I carry around in my head for a long time before attempting to create them. "Bubble Head Dreamer" is one of this designs. How do you create a hat constructed entirely out of glass (not plastic) balls of multiple sizes? Every time I work with materials that are not considered suited for millinery, I have to remind to myself that truly beautiful Millinery happens outside of any comfort zone. Stepping out of it is always an adventure full of challenges and trials, but the more of both you encounter in the process the more satisfying the final result. "Bubble Head Dreamer" demanded every bit of my patience, attention and skills and it was worth every single disappointment  along the way: I probably should mention that I had to create three different versions of mock-ups with in  four month period before finalizing the design. For a while my Atelier was buried  in colorful bubbles and, well, yes, since it is glass - in gazillion tiny pieces of glass bubbles.
 "Bubble Head Dreamer" became a part of my new Collection entitled "Sanctum" . Sanctum means a sacred place or, as I think of it, a sacred inner place where one is free of any kind of intrusion, a place free of anything but creative, a safe place, a place of many memories and many dreams, free of negative presences of any kind, a place where you can allow yourself to be the most you . "Sanctum" is, perhaps, the largest Collection I have ever created so far. I, of course, will be introducing you to each design in person just like I always do with every Collection. I am wishing everyone great weekend. :-)
