Time for a Tiara!

Tiara making and Competition

I've been asked to make a Tiara - always up for a challenge! I was lucky enough to go to a Tiara making class where I picked up lots of useful tips and know-how! This course was at the wonderful London Jewellery School and is also a great idea if you are a bride and thinking of designing your own Tiara. Alas too late for me! I will have to be content with making for others!

I went for quite a random look for the Tiara I produced on the day - I guessed that this would be a bit more forgiving where mistakes occur! You can see the result in the picture above.

The great thing about this course is that you learn to make everything yourself including the Tiara Band and every component. We also made a selection of other hair accessories using pins and combs.

Now I am ready to get on with the commissioned Tiara - so I'm off to the land of Swarovski....

Christmas is coming as you all know. Please visit Misi (Make It Sell It) to buy your handmade gifts!

This is a Crochet bracelet - a commissioned piece. If you don't see something in my shop I am alway happy to make something just for you! (As long as you don't want it by tomorrow!). That goes for most other sellers as well - always up for a challenge!

Thanks to Baggy T's for producing my Jolicious Jewellery bags!

2nd Prize:
A Christmas Tree Charm
