Bad hair day

I have backed my mermaid neckpiece with lovely soft Italian leather. My old needlecraft teacher would be proud of me, the stitches are tiny, neat and barely visible and the back of the piece looks really professional. Backing it with leather makes it comfortable and light.
However whilst I was sticking the leather onto the backing, prior to beading the edging, I managed to get glue in my hair.



By the time I had noticed the glue had set to a solid lump and there was nothing for it but to cut the bit of hair off.  I have a wedding next weekend so off to the hairdressers I went, then to the hat shop to buy a fascinator. Hopefully nobody will notice!
I’ve added the little splash of Swarovski crystals on the curly wave section and now I am working on the freeform back pieces.

I'm still learning new things all the time. This necklace seems to have taken me ages to make because I was trying new techniques and doing that always makes me a little slow. It's also the biggest neckpiece I've ever done!
