The crown

In the year of 2010 I was chosen to give birth to the crown of Miss Portugal.
They loved so much the crown that they used the same crown in the contest for 3 years.
I designed this crown with 2 front wings made of Portuguese traditional filigree. This was my first piece shown to the public, where this concept of joinning a very traditional handmade process with the modern days design and technniques took place.
The 2 front wings where simbol of this new "Era", where women assume their place of balance in the world that was ruled and managed by men.
