Artistic floral crowns are a thing now.
Floral crowns may be a staple for festivals and whimsical parties, but Chelsea Shiels is taking the world by storm with her mermaid-inspired, seashell-encrusted headdresses. The glittering designs are loaded with small conch shells, crystals, and gold accents that will make anyone wearing them feel like Princess Ariel. Shiel beautifully integrates her different findings, mixing and matching colors and textures to create multifaceted, wearable works of art that have a modern, bohemian vibe.
“I’ve always wanted to be Ariel, under the sea. I’m a real beach bum. That was where my obsession with the sea and shells came from”, Shiels said to Cosmopolitan. What started as a private hobby now became a fully-grown business. Her works can be seen in festivals, themed parties, and photoshoots, spreading that Hawaiian fairy tale vibe.
Shiel sells her floral and seashelled creations through her Etsy shop.
