Áine ~ Queen of the Fairies

Áine (pronounced: 'awn-ya'), is the Celtic Goddess of Summer and Wealth. She represents the sun, love and fertility, with the power to ensure plentiful crops and harvests. Áine is also known as the Queen of the Fairies and as Áine Chlair (Áine of the Light) and is among the most revered and powerful of Irish mythological Goddesses.

How she was made:

Áine has been constructed entirely by using only wire and vegan feathers. The wire was manipulated into a cone like shape and connected to the handmade headband. The whole wire frame was tightly wrapped with tulle so the vegan feathers could be sewn onto it.

Each feather was made by hand using sinamay straw. After cutting the shapes and fraying the edges, they were manipulated further with heat to represent straw feathers. Each feather was carefully sewn onto the wire frame by hand to give the illusion of a flower upside down.

Áine is a unique piece of art that will add magic to any outfit ♥
