International award winning jewelry designer and goldsmith, Liz Bucheit, of Crown Trout Jewelers in Lanesboro, was selected to design and create a romantic, royal tiara, which will be featured in the Children's Dance Theatre's March production of "Sleeping Beauty" in Rochester.

The tiara is made of sterling silver and adorned with Swarovski Aurora Borealis crystals, ballet pink crystals and faux pearls. The tiara will be worn by the title character, Sleeping Beauty, danced by Brianna Hicken.

The tiara reflects Bucheit's signature Scandinavian inspired "acanthus" curling vine style, also present in her designer jewelry.

Bucheit, a 2013 Minnesota State Arts Board grant recipient in Folk and Traditional Arts, received the Diva Award from the Women's Jewelry Association in New York City for her "Autumnal Tiara."

Bucheit has a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa in metal working and jewelry. She has trained in Norway and Ireland and has been designing and creating jewelry for over 30 years.

Display panels of Bucheit's additional tiara designs will be available for viewing in the Mayo Civic Center, Presentation Hall lobby, during the "Sleeping Beauty" performances on March 21, 22 and 23.

Additionally, an exhibition of Bucheit's work will be featured at Ibsen Adorned, Part II, in Lanesboro, from April 11 to 13, in conjunction with the Commonweal Theatre's annual Ibsen Festival.

Her work is available for purchase at Crown Trout Jewelers in Lanesboro or she can be contacted at www.crowntrout.com for custom jewelry design commissions.
