This fascinator became so fancy that it looked like it was going to become a full showgirl headpiece. Well it didn’t, but the name “Demi Showgirl” seemed apt.
I made the base a feather like shape and fully beaded it, adding my favorites, coloured stones, which are attached with the decreasing peyote stitch, which is my fave stitch right now. The base is wired so it can shape to any head.

I dyed the feathers to match the turquoise. That was fun and I am looking forward to more feather dyeing in my future!

With a few chunky pearls and a bit of fringe, I think I have started a new style of fascinator that I will develop more.
