I am pleased to say that I was commissioned by Duchess Sedalia MacNare who saw some of my coronets posted and decided she wanted one from me. This has many bells and whistles and things I have never tried before (I hope they all stand up to use as well as my others have). This is leather, cotton cording, beads and acrylic stones with Acrylic paint. I think it is very spiffy!

I currently have 4 pre-made coronets for sale. These are all size 22 (what I have found to be the average head size). These are all between 2 and 3 inches tall. If you are interested in one of these please let me know. If you like one of these designs but want it in a different size, I can make that!
Red and Gold Acanthus Coronet $200.

These were done for setting Baron and Baroness. Some are somewhat elaborately cut. I am very happy to know that these were worn by those serving their baronies and gave them spiff with comfort.. This shows the new coronets for the Barony of Ponte Alto in Atlantia (bottom picture) and Blackstone Mountain in AEthelmarc second from bottom). And older one for the Bright Hills in Atlantia (on top) and the second one is for the barony of Arnhold (can't recall the Kingdom name) .
Here are some leather coronets that I have done for ladies. The first was for Baroness Ro and the second for Baroness Belphoebe and the last for Baroness Swieczka. Ro and Belphobe's have wooden flues on them. Swieczka's actually leans out from the center instead of being straight up and down.
I have done many leather coronets, starting with my own personal ones and one for my husband. These are cut and painted leather with imitation stones. Designs are based on or inspired by metal crowns/coronets from period. I have not yet found any documentation for leather ones being done in period. But these are cheaper, easier to make and SO much more comfortable to wear! Here are a couple of my personal coronets.
