The objects were inspired by traditional Russian embroidery, patterns, headdresses, and amulets.

 

The first object is a hand-made Kokoshnik made of naturally dyed fabric with onion peel, embroidered with cotton threads and pearls. The woman figure in the center symbolizes the Goddes Mokosh, the Mother-Goddes, the Goddes of fertility, harvesting. Flowers and symbols of Earth around her.
 

Little objects with amulets images can be perceived as brooches. But I prefer to hang them.
Naturally dyed fabric with avocado seeds, cotton threads, pearls. 

 

The last headpiece was inspired by the Kokoshnik's form from Nizhniy Novgorod. It has a very special conical form, which highlights it among other headdresses. Fabric, cotton threads, pearls.
