Custom made by Susan Tooker of Spinning Castle, the WOODLAND GODDESS Faerie Princess Antler Crown is ready to ship and One-of-a-Kind. Covered in crystals and gold leaf, WOODLAND GODDESS displays a centerpiece stone that is a beautiful, flashing Spectrolite surrounded by sculpted leaves, spirals and acorns. Spectrolite looks black and will flash brilliant colors when hit by light in certain directions. Gorgeous green and blue AB Swarovski gems cover the front. I also decorated the back of the headdress with a stunning Labradorite cabochon that flashes deep blue and green. More detailed sculpting and Swarovski gems surround the back power stone. The antlers are a pair of vintage roe deer trophies from Germany. Featuring a rich color scheme of gold, brown, green and blue, the crown is covered in leaves, beaded trim, ostrich, rooster, peacock, and naturally molted blue macaw feathers.
The crown is medium sized, fitting a head measurement from 22.25 to 22.75 inches. The inside of the crown is also padded and covered with green velvet for comfort. Meticulously made, I use professional techniques and products when making my headdresses!

SPECTROLITE is a plagioclase feldspar in the same family as Labradorite and moonstone, displaying with intense reds, oranges and yellows as well as blues and greens. Spectrolite is found only in Finland. Spectrolite was discovered quite by accident in 1940 during the Second World War, when stone was being quarried Finland's eastern border for the purpose of making antitank obstacles, which makes it a more recent discovery than the well-known Labradorite from Canada and Madagascar. What's the difference between Spectrolite & Labradorite? Spectrolite comes only from Finland; the play of color is always in a black to very dark grey base material. It is a 'high end' material and in it's highest grades rivals the best Australian Opal. Spectrolite is said to provide quick relief from anxiety, hopelessness and depression, replacing them with enthusiasm, self-confidence and inspiration. It is said to dispel negativity and to bring clear understanding by enhancing clarity of thought and improving one's ability to cooperate with others in harmony. Spectrolite is also said to give perseverance, strength and enhanced intuition when one is experiencing times of conflict and change.
LABRADORITE is a considered by mystics to be a stone of transformation and magic. It is said to clear, balance and protect the aura. It is purported to help provide clarity and insight into your destiny, as well as attract success. It is used in metaphysics for dream recall, and finding ways to use dreams in daily life. Mystically, energies of stress and anxiety are said to be reduced by labradorite. Labradorite is said to increase intuition, psychic development, esoteric wisdom, help with subconscious issues, and provide mental illumination.
DEER TOTEM- Deer is a keen observer, enabled to see well in low lighting and its sensitive hearing allows it to perceive a twig snap in the distance. The graceful movement and gentle nature of these creatures show us the innocence of nature. Deer is a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear what isn't being said. Deer teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentleness so we can share our open-heartedness with others.
