Final Work Showcase 4 (Barbie Doll Tiaras)

I have always loved crowns and tiaras. This passion started die to two major events that occurred in the 6th year of my life. I won a competition in my pre-school and part of the prize was to be crowned king of the pre-school. The cardboard crown became one of my favourite toys. This mind altering event was followed a few months later by the televised wedding of Princess Diana. Her scintillating tiara flashed so brightly that the sparkling seared itself into my mind forever. I had to be involved with that sparkle all my life, so I became a jeweller. Sadly, one hardly ever get the opportunity to make crowns and tiaras. In order to satiate my desire for surrounding myself with sparkly head jewellery, I began making them (from costume jewellery) for Barbie Dolls. It was actually this hobby, beginning at about age 12, that lead me to became a jeweller by trade. 

For today's post I thought I'd post on the only two "real" Barbie tiaras I've ever made. These two 1\6th scale (Barbie Doll Scale) tiaras are made from solid sterling silver and set with synthetic stones. I wish I had the ready cash to have made them in white gold and diamonds.
