Handcrafted with a one of kind butterfly garden theme, this sterling silver tiara was constructed by fusing individually handmade components including the butterfly, flowers, and zig zagging wire to bring the garden into full bloom with artisan creativity. The tiara design inspiration borrows from a childhood dream of passing by a store front window packed with jewelry and wedding attire for the rich and famous and imagining a fairy tale wedding. This lively garden is that special wonderland where magic sprouts and grows into a dream.
Each element of the garden theme was sawed entirely by hand from a 20 gauge flat sheet of sterling silver using a fine jewelry saw and joined to a handmade 16 gauge sterling silver zig zag wire with an acetylene torch. The flowers and butterflies were dapped and domed on steel block to give a full three dimensional experience to the garden, while also maximizing the benefits of curved shapes to reflect natural light into highlights and shadows. After removing the fire scale, rounding the end tabs, and filing the edges, a patina was applied to the chased lines in the butterfly wings, leaf veins, and hammered dimples.
Photographed in this listing is my personal Butterfly Garden Tiara that I consider a one of kind design, however this listing can be used to order your own personalized Tiara either using my example or requesting your own personal touches. I can also create a fully custom tiara for any wedding, special occasion, or as a unique yet bold eye catching accent accessory. For example, the flowers and butterflies can be made from bronze, copper, or gold and even topped off with personalized gemstones to add some color to the design. Just remember, each tiara is handmade one at a time and no two will ever be exactly alike.
