Recently,one of my former colleagues contacted me through friendster to ask if I could make a tiara for her wedding some time this year. Thank you Hannah, I am extremely overwhelmed. Thank you for believeing in my talent (if you can actually call it a talent lol). I wish you and Raymond a wonderful lifetime together. My congratulations to both of you! Cheers!
This is not actually the first time someone asked me to make wedding tiaras. Another friend who owns a Bridal couture house asked if I could make tiaras for his collections. And another one asked me if I could make a special wedding cord for her wedding. Wow. I can really make a career out of this hehehe. Guys, if you ever come across this post, thank you sooo much. You honor me with your trust.
Tiaras are very easy to do, but it could take a lot of time. They can be very simple to superbly ornate. Choosing your own tiara is rather easy, just make sure it will complement your wedding dress and coordinate with your accessories. If you have a stunning Monique Lhuillier Wedding Gown, a simple tiara will do.
Today, I will show you how to make your wedding day extra bit special by handcrafting you own bridal tiara. Don’t worry if you’re not crafty or creative because all it takes are nice beads, a tiara head band and a good pair pliers!
THINGS YOU NEED:
tiara head band
Crystal glass beads
Silver Plated Wire (this project requires a lot of twisting so use 0.4mm)
Mini flat nose pliers
Wire cutters (I use nailcutter)
1. cut your silver wire into about 5 and 7 inch per piece, make at least 30-40 pieces.
2. wrap your wires on the headband then glue them.
3. start adding your pearls and crystals. Place them alternately. Using your mini flat nose pliers, twist the ends of the wire.
4. shape the wires into any shape you want, then cut the excess wires.
Once you have got all your wires glued and beads placed on, your wedding tiara is ready for your big day!
