Tiara of the Crystal Princess by SilverSlinger Tiara of the Crystal Princess by SilverSlinger
Gah! Time for a new camera!

Yes! It's an actual tiara this time! One that's been designed to fit comfortably atop somepony's head. And to be flat out honest: This is the very first tiara I've ever made in my 8 years of crafting jewelry. I'm actually very proud it. So was my father, who's been crafting jewelry for over 30 years, and that means even more to me :D

Anyway, this piece was a commission for someone who wanted a replica as close to Princess Cadence's tiara as possible for her cosplay. The tiara is hand crafted from solid brass. It measures about 4 inches in height, and 10 inches from one side to the other. The jewel on top of the crown is purple jade; which I had to import straight from Hong Kong. I couldn't find a large Rhombus shaped gem for the center of the crown, so I had to make it out of 4 smaller rhombus shaped foilback stones. The entire crown has been coated with a anti-oxidant, matte finish to prevent tarnishing. The crown is held in place securely atop the head by some heavy gauge brass wire that presses gently against the head, right above the ears. The wire can be adjusted to fit any sized head.

The Princess Cadence Vector was supplied by :iconmokrosuhibrijac: [link]

Dad: >"Proud of you son."

Chaotic: >"Feels good man, feels good."

Looks amazing though. If I was the commissioner, I'd never take the thing off and procced to shout at everyone that I am now the queen of ERRYTANG!

lol does feel good XD It'll feel even better, though, when the other two crowns I have to make are done :XD: They're going to be even harder to design.

Your pictures really don't do this piece justice.

I'm not wearing it right now, but I've totally been wearing it randomly around the house lately and feeling like a pretty pretty princess.

It looks nice. The rhombus peace you could try using a mold and color plastic. Great job.

Yeah; I may or may not work with molds and plastic sometime. Who knows?
