Mercury is one of the most bad-ass unicorn riders in all of Jackalope Land, and a lot of people wonder where she came from. Well, she actually came from your world. Mercury was born outside of London, England and was a young girl who fought hard to escape reality. Raised in a quiet and dreary town, Mercury spent her childhood dreaming of unicorns, castles and mystical realms. As you can image, those around her called her a "dreamer", with her "head in the clouds" and questioned her ability to build a secure future for herself.
One day, at the age of 16 Mercury packed her bags and went out to find Unicorns, for she knew that they existed. This little girl had almost given up hope, when sat by the edge of the canals in London- she saw something from deep below summon her. She knew it was time. Mercury dropped her bag and jumped into the icy water, only to find herself racing through imaginary currents in the arms of a mermaid-like creature. By time she arose, Mercury was no longer in the world she knew.... she was in Jackalope Land. As she stepped ashore on the rocky shores of Shipwreck cove, she knew this was where she would find her unicorn- and that she did.
When Mercury met the unicorn tribes, she made this headpiece so that they could easily recognize her as one of their own. This headpiece became a key element in her communicating with Mars, and the other unicorns. Now, we have recreated her beautiful unicorn headpiece so that you can communicate with the unicorns too!
The headpiece base is made from lightweight buckram, and is then crafted from 100% unicorn magic. The horn was picked from the mystical unicorn horn tree in the depths of Jackalope Land. To be able to pick one of these horns, the unicorn clan needs to be able to trust you and allow you in- which is no easy feat. The ears, horn and base are all covered in lightweight pearls from the Northern Pearl Cove, and rhinestones and crystals collected from all over our mystical realm.
The headpiece has real unicorn hair attached to it to give you all the powers to connect with these beautiful creatures.
The headpiece attaches with a satin ribbon tied at the nape of the neck, and a clip that can secure it in your hair.
All unicorn headpiece are made by hand, and no two are exactly the same- much like their owner.
We can make these in custom colours too, just send us an email!
