Mermaid Crowns

Written by  Phoebe C.

Chelsea Shiels, a 27-year-old Melbourne-based florist, had been making flower crowns until recently... "I've always wanted to be Ariel, under the sea. I'm a real beach bum. That was where my obsession with the sea and shells came from", Shiels told Cosmopolitan.

Her creations are anything but basic. Popsugar reported that "in addition to shells, she utilizes crystals, beads, and chains to make one-of-a-kind, show-stopping hair accessories."

Big shells, chains and jewels create regal crowns, making the wearer look like a siren!

Mashable reported, "The mermaid crowns are certainly elaborate and elegant enough to stand on their own, but Chelsea's Instagram proves that they are even better when complemented with neon hair, sparkly eyebrows, glitter makeup, lavish nose rings, and psychedelic sunglasses."

Shiels is eco-friendly with her designs. As she explains, "I only buy from suppliers that only collect shells from over flowing beaches around the world. My main supplier donates 30 percent of proceeds back into a variety of charities... mainly to help preserve the Great Barrier Reef! I love the ocean and I assure you I have great suppliers and pay lots of money for my shells for this reason! I do not support anyone stealing from our beaches to make a profit."

You can buy these one-of-a-kind crowns from her Etsy shop named Chelsea's Flowercrowns.
