March….the month when we all celebrate our Irish roots. Even those of us who do not have any of the Blarney Stone or Emerald Isle in our genes like to celebrate this month. So in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and Ireland and green haired ladies everywhere, here is the Shamrock Queen. She was created using a foam pear which was gessoed, painted, and mounted on a table leg. Lots of green paint and some glittering jewels helped turn her into royalty. She is wearing a jaunty crown made of pewter which is part of a charm and carrying a staff which is topped with a Shamrock crest in honor of St Paddy’s Day. Lots of fun to make and she is in our Etsy shop now.
