I finished my head piece this week. This involved sewing my sinamay strips of different widths into twists and then attaching them firmly to the covered headband using a glue gun.

I also spent a while in the dye room this week printing up my fabric using silver and bronze printing inks combined with metal foiling. I then started making up my fabric roses for the top:
