  • New heair combs

    Here are two of the latest hair combs I've been creating.


    This one is burgundy based using dart cut feathers and swarovski crystals.


    This one uses Swarovski bicones and pearls.

      I love the beadwork in the second one but my favourite is the first one - very elegant.

        on designs using glue like the second one here, then I use GS Hypo cement. it takes 24 hrs at least to dry properly, but always dries crystal clear so that if ther is any spillage around a crystal, then it becomes part of the design.

        The first comb has no glue. It is created from 0.4mm sp wire that is twisted by hand (Ouch!) the featthers are just incorporated into the wind.

              I am hoping to do so later this year.
              My tiaras and hair accessories are regular attenders at wedding fairs though. One of my clients runs a nail bar and has a selection of my jewellery, tiaras etc for sale in her shop. She takes them all with her when she goes!

              This year I am hoping to expand that side of the business and am getting into gear to do the rounds of the area getting more stockists sorted out!

                      I have just been asked to make some hair combs, for a colleauges wedding outfit, she is the bridesmaid

                      The bride is sending me some feathers and would like to have them incorporated.

                      Do you just twist them into the wire and attach to the comb?

                          you'll have to see the feathers before you make a discission.
                          Some feathers are stripped and then died. they tend to be the ones I work with most. They look better than the soft downy feathers.

                          I bundle the ends together and set with glue. I then bind the ends with 0.4mm wire and use the end to wrap onto the comb. it's fidly.

                          If the fethers are hairy all the way down they are much more difficult to use. The problem come in that you can easily distort the feather and it looks a mess. however if you try to strip them you risk loosing the colour. The best thing is to trim very close to the quill with out taking it all off.

                            They are both beautiful! I would be after something along those lines if my man asks me to marry him.

                              Thanks for your top tips bbd, and so quick too!

                              I will try some over the weekend, any tips on where is best to get the hair combs? I presume clear ones would be best?
