On January 15, 1559, the coronation of Queen Elizabeth I took place in Westminster Abbey. I’ve always loved this portrait of Elizabeth I and was thrilled when Natalie chose it for one of the pages in Tudor Queens and Consorts. Not only is it a beautiful interpretation of the young queen, but the composition and intricate details translate nicely to a colouring page.

…and how about a necklace too?

When I was a merchant at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire last fall, I saw some really lovely pendant necklaces made with small art prints and clear cabochons. After watching a Youtube tutorial and taking a quick trip to the craft store I was able to transform Elizabeth I’s coloring page into this gorgeous necklace! I chose an antique copper setting and chain to evoke an historical vibe while adding a little Tudor flair to your wardrobe.
