Since I wrote my draft essay on the headdress of Anne of Cleves I’ve gone on a trip in time and space across documents and art work of many sorts. My conclusion still holds, I just need to change a section and move a section around. An expansion of a really important section that reveals more of what’s in plain sight. There is a role for another sections but it requires a bit of art history to explain their inclusion and potential use so I’ve put a few more documents in my folder of authors to quote.
But I have enough to trigger publication very soon whether or not my paper is accepted into a conference.
I also need to get the courage to go on camera with my physical recreations, and that means finishing the restoration of my very delicate and very expensive pearl work. I might have found a non yellowing fabric glue, but I also have starting clipping the pieces with curved scissors. I’ve lost a pair. Somehow. So I grabbed another pair. It’s not got as fine tips but it’s still uesful.
I also will need to make a template for my thistle <<bentgin>> which may be a little too large to fit that description but it’s handy to use vs <<kette>> as often that refers to a linked chain necklace.
I think I’ll be able to back the last pieces of my jewellery set with the pinks and roses and scrolling cats.
