Laurel Crown

Inspired by the Roman laurel crown given to triumphant generals, I tried my hand at making a crown of my own. The whole thing is made of steel, about half a sheet of scrap sheet and two steel rods for the circlet and stems and then it’s been tempered to color it. I affectionately call it my “emperor hat” and for a first try, it came out pretty well.
