Diadem

Diadem is a set of highly ornamented hand-letters. Each letter comes with unique design and wreath. The wreath combined with the character can be purposed as drop-caps in storybooks, pendants on jewelry, or stand alone logos. 

The inspiration for this design came from the extravagant Christmas ornaments that is seen on trees during the Holiday season. I wanted to create a set of letters that combines the odd tradition of representing self with initials in events like this.
