Audree- a crown for solstice or spring

160.00

I started out making a tulip, then I gave the tulip teeth, then I gave it two leaves. Then I made the usual "horns" into vine-ish tendrils, in case it wanted hands. Then I tried to name it after the plant from Little Shop of Horrors, but I couldn't remember how to spell it. 
THEN I didn't get around to putting it on the website for a couple months, and in the intervening time I thought about what a great crown this would be for solstice, about how those grasping vines I had given the tulip were just unfurling plants, pushing their way up through the earth, about how tulips bloom so early, sometimes through the snow, about how the first days of spring that are still part of winter feel. 

So, yeah, all that. 

A number of years back, I saw a painting of Diana, in which she was wearing a crown that was also a set of horns. I loved it. Folks had been asking for tiaras and crowns for years, and all the sudden, I wanted to make them. So I began making them. That's the whole story.

These crowns are flexible. They can be bent in a little and be worn a bit forward to stand up more, or bent a little out and be worn more as a headband. Will fit pretty much all adult heads. They stay on quite well just by their own natural springiness, but we've also drilled holes at the end, just in case you want a ribbon or pins or other extra security. Not intended as a toy for children- just as a toy for adults who may or may not be grown up. Your call.
