Nefertiti Crown

This is a crown that I made for the discovery channel Nefertiti series and was as faithfull a copy as could be done from the photos I had. It's made of hand worked copper which has been plated with real gold and then enamelled. The bird and serpent at the front are sculpted and then finished in 24K gold leaf and burnished.

There was a time when I'd wanted to be a jeweller so I really enjoyed making this piece.

 

The image is a still from the show.
