Friday edit: Jellyfish headpiece by JCN Fascinators

Handmade fascinators by Italian designer Claudia della Frattina / JCN Fascinators, Rome

In a world of its own accessory fantasy, Claudia della Frattina’s Seaweed collection, a concept first launched 2 years ago, explores nature and sea life in rich colorations with adornments and beads. Combining a hand blocked round base in three layers of sinamay, with sinamay strands below, each delicate thread has been hand finished with minute crystal beads, creating a dazzling almost magical light effect.
