Each piece is individually handcrafted by artist Francis Prachthauser. Each piece is formed with simple hand tools under the heat of a 5000 degree flame. After the metal is bent, melted, stretched and flowed, it is polished and lacquered to preserve the luminous quality of the metal.
Francis has been a working bronze sculptor since 1982. His work has appeared in galleries, art shows and renaissance faires as well as his own store at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, and specialty venues like Cirque de Soleil.

I bought this on a whim because I love unusual hair pieces and this is no exception. It's sturdier than I expected so it keeps my hair up in one go without fussing with it constantly. The crystal is pretty and is the perfect accent too. =)
