Crowns and Coronets have become our specialty. All of our coronets are hand made here in our studio.  They are composed of brass, nickel or sterling silver, mounted with semi-precious or precious stones and custom designed castings.  We offer pieces available for immediate purchase, or accept custom orders to the specifications of the customer on a commission basis. Custom orders require time to design and construct, expect construction time of 30 days to a year depending on the piece’s complexity and our own time constraints.  All customers desiring custom work are encouraged to contact us at the earliest possible convenience.  Prices depend on the intricacy of work, gems, and cost of materials.  For those wishing to have something sooner we suggest looking on our Coronet Specials page. Coronets shown there are not necessarily stock items and are sold on a first come first serve basis.

People have often asked which crown or coronet was the most difficult to make. I would have to judge this crown as the most challenging I have yet completed. It was stylized after Edward the Confessor’s Crown. It took approximately 108 hours to complete, is constructed of both Sterling and german silver with a 24KT gold plate, and is mounted with faux or synthetic gems.

I would have to judge this crown as the second most challenging crown I have yet completed. It was artistic deviation from the Accolade design. The blue spinels surrounding the piece are princess cut gems while the gems mounted on the fluers are ovals. The 8 mm pearls are mounted over the princess cut gems. It is constructed of both german silver and brass. It is priced in the $900 range. Circa 1520-

Ducal Coronets

Presented here are examples of the work that we have already finished. Below are some variations of the strawberry leaf design that we have already finished. Please note, many of these were custom pieces, as such I will not exactly replicate them, rather, use the images as a guideline as to what is possible for your custom piece. Prices depend on the intricacy of work, gems, and cost of materials.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
