Skate Helmets - with Wings!
I started making the prototypes for some winged roller derby helmets a while ago now, inspired by my winged skate wheels, and I finally found the time to finish them this month. I made a necklace sized one, the same as my other roller derby helmet charms, but also made a teeny-tiny one. I wasn't sure it would work, but it cast really well and is just so cute!
It's really, really tiny!
I think it would work well as a really subtle derby necklace, for days where you have to look sensible and can't be all 'hey, look at the big roller skate around my neck' but I also tried it the little helmet out as earrings, which I think are really cute.
I'm going to try making tiny versions of the jammer and pivot helmets next. I'm redesigning the larger helmets too, which is why they're currently out of stock. I've learned so much since I made my original prototypes, I'd really like to tweak them now to make them perfect.
