Sometimes two loves come together in a perfect package (not the tart, the headdress).
This is the Snow Queen Tiara by Lorenz Baumer, a finalist in the 2004 Bombay Sapphire Prize.
This is awarded by the Bombay Sapphire Foundation to promote outstanding artists, designers and architects working with glass.
I should be in the running, I work very well with a glass of Bombay in my hand.
I want that tiara, really really want that tiara.

That tiara is likely to take someone's eye out if used in the correct manner of which it was intended.... ;)

Mindy said...

I like the idea that if someone annoys you enough, you can just put your head down and charge. That would fix them. Why just take an eye out?

JahTeh said...

Jayne and Mindy, I love it because it reminds me of 'The Masters of the Universe'. I loved that show and haven't found the DVD of the film anywhere. I think Dolf Lundgren played the hero and I'll have to go and look at the movie data base.

I just checked and it was Frank Langella as Skeletor and the sorceress of Castle Greyskull wore a headdress like that.
It was a better film than I thought it would be.

Hey!- free the slaves!- that's one helluva tiara!

A bogan can look at a cat
A cat can look at a king
A king can look damned smug
You bet
But not widout dat bling!

Oh to be a bourgeois

Can't afford it? Don't worry, one of the boys has taken over a pizza shop in Altona: Millers Road, in a row of shops, other side as you come off the freeway, right near Altona Gate.

pizzeria di ciccio.

Wow, what a joint. Done over, re-equipped, huge plasma on the wall, and Rocco's gleaming new Harley on the footpath outside. That's his name: Rocco. His old man runs the Italian club, Laverton. Well Rocco has a university degree, if you please, but his love was always pizza. It's his life. And mine is women of course. Yes, but especially after eating a Mexicana. Wooh! Watch out then!

ha ha ha!

Tell him RH sent you then sit back and see how well you get looked after, I'm not kidding.

River said...

I don't like it. Not at all. it's all yours J.

JahTeh said...

Robbert, how I love pizza, let me count the ways.

River, not for everyone, just us masters of the universe.

There's The Cheesecake Shop in the same strip (true) and a tailor, for letting clothes out a bit.

R.H. said...

Yes well one day we'll share a capricciosa (family size) and there'll be one helluva brawl. You'll be counting alright, after landing me a knockout.

R.H. said...

Some "creature" has thrown a five-year-old from the Westgate bridge.
It's beyond describing.
We're demanding the death penalty: for PAEDOPHILES, and CHILD KILLERS.

Middle Child said...

u are in the wrong family...our two daughters skipped a generation and they drool over stuff like this...you would love looking with them. I see the beauty, but then wish I had the guts to do the training to paint it...not own it... one day

R.H. said...

She's got a classic face. I think of Pompeii.

JahTeh said...

Rh, more has come out about that father who apparently would have thrown the other two children over had a woman driver not got to him.

Therese, I could see that by the wedding dress which was beautiful.

Rh, I'm not fussed about the cheesecake shop and I can't believe I just said that, but I find their cakes too oily.
