Orpheus Wreath

 I used InkScape to make laurel leaf shapes.  I made a line of about six in addition to single ones.  Then I used a plotter-cutter to cut them out.

 I thought I'd be able to spiral the linked leaves into a wreath.  I probably could have, but it was much easier to use the metal tiara as a form.

 I hadn't realized it at the time, but the cut-out vein made it easy to lock the leaf strings together.

 And then I was ready to dress as if I were Orpheus.
