The latin name for a whole family of adorable bats with extra long ears; this crown can be ears or horns or both.
A friend sent me these pre-cut pieces of steel; they were leftovers from some large industrial-scale piece. There were enough in the package to do exactly 13 pairs of ears/horns, and then one little unicorn. Ten pairs sold before I even got a chance to take photos, so these guys are about as limited edition as things can get. As always, each pair was different than his brothers, but in this case- there will be no more brothers. This is the very last one.
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.
