A photoshoot that was a year in the making, the Queen of the Hedgehogs. Yes, hedgehogs. I own several and my photographer friend at RRS Photography wanted to do a shoot with me and my eight hogs. Since the suggestion, two passed away, so we had six to work with. It was not easy! I designed this cape and collar along with the headdress with spiky inspiration. (dba Pins and Needles Boutique).

Using beads, wire, kabob sticks and lots of innovation, I came up with this collar. Queen_Collar

This headdress is gorgeous. I created a wire frame and then everything else fell into place. I don’t tend to plan or draw out a lot of designs because they just come to me on the fly. Queen_Headdress
