Flower Crowns and Horns

Posted on

I know it’s become a big ~thing~ on the internet to give bad guys flower crowns but sometimes you just want your own real flower crown to feel pretty yourself. If that’s you then I’ve got a great shop to recommend.

Hand made in Europe by Katerina Metamorphose, these flower crowns are some of the best I’ve seen. Each flower is made by hand from varying textiles and can be custom tailored to fit your needs. Not into flower crowns and more of a laurels or leaf person, she’s got you covered! You can also find unique horn wreathes, antlers and Unicorn horns to accompany a wide variety of costume possibilities. Yes you’ll have some wait time if you live outside of the EU, but man is this quality worth it. I highly recommend giving her Etsy store a look thru if this at all strikes your fancy. 🙂


A Crowning Achievement

Posted on

We’re at Wizard World St. Louis this weekend and there are some very lovely wares surrounding us in Artist’s Alley. One that caught my eye was a very shiny display that truly stood out from the crowd thanks to a very enthusiastic occupant. Roger Zimpel of Moria Silver comes from a long line of jewelry makers and while you would be hard pressed to miss his fantastic attitude, it’s also hard to miss the time and effort that goes into his work.

His lovely partner/webmistress, Judy, just cannot contain her enthusiasm either.

He uses the lost wax method to create wondrous crowns, rings, pendants, and a number of other beautiful wearables. The highlights at this convention, however, were definitely the crowns.

These unique creations come in an array of styles and colors with the possibility of adding a gemstone for a pop of color or certain mystical attributes.
