Black Duchess Coronet

Duchess Sedalia commissioned a second coronet, she had some great design ideas and this is what I did with it. It is one of my favorites, so striking and spiffy! "Black Duchess Coronet", Acrylic and artificial jewels on Leather.

Silver Quills Coronet

New coronet, this commission was for a somewhat simple coronet. They have silver quills on their Arms and wanted them on the coronet. The red stones and the subtle secondary stones (which are dark brass half pearls) where what the client wanted. I think it came out nice. 22 1/4, Leather, Acrylic and artificial stones and pearls.

Dragonfly Coronet

A friend was just made a court Baroness for her years of scribal work. Great and well deserved (now they need to give her the Peerage she is over due for). I was asked to do a coronet for her and she and I talked about what she wanted. Her makers mark is a dragonfly and her colors are silver and green. So I did a Malachite looking base with silver filigree dragonfly and vine work that almost every scribe should recognize. I am very pleased with how this came out. Lots of detail (a shadow under every edge of silver). This is 23 inches around, Leather, Acrylic, metallic silver paint and artificial gems and pearls.
