queen kathleen is a five star queen, but i've only given her three....

.....can't have her getting a big head!  five stars is a weighty responsibility.  this tiara was custom made for kathleen and is actually glued instead of soldered.  i've used e 6000 which holds anything to anything.  the silicone is more flexible than solder. but, the big advantage is that i don't have to reheat my beautiful leaves.   they have such lovely patinas, that i hate to change by applying heat.  of course if this solution doesn't work as well as i think it will, all my pieces are lifetime guaanteed!

It will be interesting to see if the glue holds together well. Would love to see you or Kathleen wearing it.

pretty sure it will, seems very strong, and especially given the kind on wear it will get on a head. if it were a bracelet, i would have even tried.
