Move Over Flower Crowns, Mermaid Crowns Are Taking Over


They’re a smorgasbord of materials that’s a little more visually aggressive on the eyes that flower crowns are. They are rougher because they are things of repurposed beauty – sea glass, and seashells. They are things of regal beauty, adorned with sparkles and gems, and look more fit for a queen than a princess (sorry, flower crowns)

Some people are using it to promote sustainability and save pretty seashells from being crushed and turned into concrete, like Melbourne mermaid crown aficionado Chelsea Shiels who saves these lovely shells from their inevitable fate. Her 80,000 followers prove that her designs, along with her ethics, are on point.
