  • Fascinators how hard?

    Apart from spelling them that is!


    I have just been comissioned to do a full matching jewellery shebang for a wedding, there are 4 flower girls which we have agreed on the jewellery for but my client would like hair accessories too......... YIKES

    I have never tried such a thing are they very hard and where would I get the combs or slides? They would need to be small.

    Answers on a postcard please............

    I've had a dabble with fascinators and love them , it really depends what style your customer wants swarovski beads or feathers

    If you follow the same rules as tiara making with the combs , 0.4mm to 0.6mm wire is the best and them simply add the beads in the design your customer wants.

    The feather ones are a little harder and you need a pad glued onto the comb to either stich or glue the feathers into place

    this is a good site for the bits you need , combs start at 39p each

    let us know how you get on


    ooopps forgot the website addy .....

      The one I bought (to wear at a wedding) was built on a hair band. That was covered with silk fabric and had feathers sewn on one side.

      I'm not saying do feathers but if it's for little kiddies they might be more comfortable with a hair band rather than a comb. You could still make it sparkly jewellery.

        Id say youd need to know what hairstyle each person is having before you make them.
        There is no point having a slide with a decoration coming out at the wrong angle...if that makes any sense.

          Excellent point - I have to make my friend's tiara for her wedding in June and everytime I speak to her she asks if I've started it yet and is always disappointed when I tell her that there's no point me starting it till she decides what hair style she will be having.

            Thanks for all your advice, I'm still nervous of the actual creation part but I have a bit of time (March) to practice and the jewellery is simple so that bit is ok!

            The bride says the hair will be down and curled with just one side "clipped" back, hence why I thought a comb would be the best option.

            I love that site..... make me want to make lots of pretty things!
