Phoenix Dragon Tiara

This elaborate tiara comission is nearing completion.  After months of sculpting the wax, sweating over the price of precious metal, and agonizing over the logistics of casting such a complex project, magic has happened.  All that remains to be completed is the setting of the three opals. They are loosly positioned in place for the photo.The Phoenix section is cast in 14k rose gold and the Dragon and end sections are cast in sterling silver. A carved Australian crystal opal accents the dragon and two firey Mexican fire opals embellish the phoenix.
