Beaded Coronet
The idea for this project came from a picture I saw of a diadem from Khokhlach Burial Mound, which currently resides at the Hermitage Museum in the former Soviet Union. The diadem, which dates to the first century CE, has deer processing to the tree of life around the upper edge. The trees have little gold leaves that move like charms on a bracelet and, having seen it the first time, my thought was it would look great done in beads. And so I started a quest to see if there were similar head ornaments in Medieval Europe, and if so, what they looked like in comparison.
