CORAL KRONE


CORAL KRONE
Headpiece / Headband 
Made to order 
I can make 4 similar models.
1 left.


Seabed Coral inspiration for this hair ornament , a sophisticated headpiece , between crown and tiara.


No Coral in it , but glass beads , color coral .
These beads are vintage , as the turquoise , from France , the Briare region .
They are dated 1930s and they were used to make Rosary. 


I use approximately 470 of these old beads .


This area Briare , was famous in the 19th century for its production of glass and mother of pearl buttons & beads , and later the enamel for mosaics
The beads I used for CORAL KRONE are the original brand Bapterosses ( created in 1845 ,producing glass buttons ) , who moved in 1850 in Briare . Bapterosses started the production of these beads in 1864 .

Due to the success of the buttons and beads , the factory grown more and more . In 1881 , Briare becomes "The City of The Beads" . Peoples from villages around worked also for the factory: in 1881 , between 9 000 to 10 000 persons worked for Bapterosses !
In 1882 they started to produce enamel for mosaics . Which continue to be produced .
The production of buttons and beads stopped early in the 1950s , because the success of the plastic , more cheap and not fragile .


To don't loose your crown , a thin vintage ribbon to secure the way you wear it .
The lining is an up-cycled Damask silk , turquoise , with paisley motif pink and yellow.


I use 2 felts , between the 2 fabrics, to give to the headpiece its shape.
Hand-sewn on 2 flexible headbands "horse-shoe shaped".


The black fabric where are hand sewn the coral glass beads , with turquoise wool threads , is an up-cycled silk from India , embroidered with sequins , beads ands plastic rhinestone . A true Bollywood sari ! Many restoration to fix them correctly .

As you can see , the crown can be positioned on the head in 2 different ways :


This headpiece measures approximately 3.5 inches // 9 cm at the widest point.


The "coral branches" are made with long gold pins.


They are flexible and they turn in various ways , because they are not statically fixed.
