Which do you prefer Traditional Beaded Crowns or Newer Silver Crowns

Out of all the powwows that I have been attending over the years I now see that majority of princesses and some cloth dancers are now starting to wear Silver Crowns instead of the traditional Beaded Crowns. I mean sure silver crowns are nice and cheeper to have made but I am use to seeing those beaded crowns ever since I was little. Sure I have had the chance to wear them both but personally I prefer the Beaded Crowns over the silver.
So I am asking everyone out there on powwows.com to post their opinion on which one they prefer themselfs or which one looks the best.

Yeah.. beaded crowns. The silver crowns are nice but the beaded ones are nicer. I like seeing all the beautiful, creative and original designs. A lot of hard work goes into each one... ya just can't top the designs on them.

The last time I wore a silver crown was when I was pow-wow princess back in the mid 90's. It was pretty and all, but damn it just made my head hurt because it had combs on the side. I bled many times trying to put the damn thing on! But then the next couple of times when I was princess again, I got beaded crowns. So I prefer beaded ones.

I prefer beaded crowns. They look nicer. However, I was taught growing up that the only cloth dancers who wore crowns were princesses. Crowns were worn by buckskin dancers. I see alot of cloth dancers wearing them now. What do you all think about this? Hmmmm...... maybe this should be discussed in a different thread.

My sister once recieved a copper crown. I thought it was really cool and because copper has long been used by our people and others in our area as a sign of wealth or high rank.

shawl,

I think silver crowns are only worn by princess's. They are fairly new (within the past 50 years). I think you will find a majority of your silver crowns will be found being worn by princess's in the southwest, and also southern plains to some extent.
