This sculpted leather circlet makes an excellent costume accessory! I create these little crowns using premium tooling leather and artist quality acrylic paints. The leather is hand cut, shaped, and painted – then sealed with a protective top coat. This one is painted in black with pewter accents and silver rivets. At the center is a raw quartz crystal point.
This is one of my smaller circlet designs, so it also works beautifully as a choker or collar. The spikes and whorls are only about 1.5″ tall at the highest points. It measures about 12″ around, which fits as a half or demi-crown on most adults; it does not go all the way around the head. This size is quite versatile, in that you can wear it across the brow like a traditional crown, or atop the head like more of a tiara (see last photo), or as a choker. It ties on like a mask, with gorgeous and durable stretch ribbon.
