Rushi Modular Headpiece System in Onyx
Rushi Modular Headpiece System is constructed with high quality metal beads that are coated in polymer to preserve shine and ensure the item is hypoallergenic.
Ethically made with secret ancient techniques by our skilled artisans, each piece takes several days to make. The crown is accented with hand cut mirror clusters, intricate back glass beads, small black crystals and locally harvested cowrie shells.
This piece is fully lined by hand in luxurious black velvet for your ultimate comfort.
Like all of our headpiece systems, Rushi Modular Headpiece System is modular. It can be worn in several different ways:
* As a solo crown.
* The crown can be worn upside down for a different look.
* Combined with any variation of the 3 different side adornment. Cowrie shell attachments, tassels and all side pieces easily clasp on and off to allow for custom looks.
* In your own unique interpretation using the detachable components.
Liu Rushi (1618–1664) was a poet, an independent spirit (she often cross-dressed), known as one of the "Eight Beauties of Qinhuai" and a patriot. Sold by her family into prostitution at an early age, Liu Rushi had a hard life, but with her intelligence and talent for writing poetry she quickly became popular with highly ranked politicians, poets and leaders. In 1640 Liu embarked on a campaign to marry the respected scholar Qian Qianyi. Dressed in men's clothing, she accosted Qian and requested his opinion on one of her poems, which got his attention. They were soon married which broke many rules in China at the time. Her affinity for cross-dressing persisted after they were married; she regularly wore men's clothing whilst in public. This affectation earned her the nickname rushi, "Confucian Gentleman", which also puns on her chosen name Rushi.
