Congratulations to Robin who won the Gold Medal 2013 Fire Mountain Gems competition for this entry “Care for some Tea”.
Robin was inspired by the Etsy Bead Embroidery Guild’s Bead Fest “Steampunk” for this little gem.
The Top Hat was handmade by the Gypsy Ladies but everything else, including the bow on the back was handmade by Robin.

The hat includes fossils, 1800’s authentic watches, chain, Amber, Pearls, shark teeth, large faceted Smokey Quartz, mother of pearl, taffeta, minerals, sterling silver, vintage bronze flowers, glass and seed beads.
