Featherhead Bridal Tiara by Liz Bucheit
This is an Embellishment exhibit piece. Available to pick up or have shipped after January 5, 2024.
Artist Statement: This piece is inspired by Scandinavian bridal crown traditions and created using fine silver filigree techniques unique to traditional regional Norwegian bunad (national costume) silver. Filigree is perfect for framing a bird wing motif, framing the lightness of the piece and the intricate detail of individual feathers.
I create jewelry and body adornment inspired by my Scandinavian ancestry and keep close ties to my heritage by drawing inspiration from Nordic folklore and myth. A goldsmith for over 30 years, I hold a master’s degree in metalworking and jewelry. I’m an active speaker on the topic of Norwegian filigree work and conduct workshops and classes in jewelry design and fabrication. I own and operate Crown Trout Jewelers in Lanesboro, Minnesota
Dimensions: h 1 ½” x w 3 ½”
Materials: fine silver and sterling silver
