As a means for unique self-expression, Heather started crafting crowns for herself in preparation for Burning Man in 2011. Her initial attempts included using fur covered deer antlers and flowers. Although this masterpiece looked amazing, it proved to be a bit uncomfortable. This experience gave rise to Heather utilizing her skills as a metalsmith to create extravagant crowns from forged metals, crystals, stones and various other materials. Now Barnesworks carries “Crowns for All Occasions” in the Feelings section of the studio. Whether a festival, wedding, or birthday these custom made crowns are suitable for whatever the wearer desires!
