  • tiaras

    Hi there i am new to this and have started making tiaras and i wondered if you could give me a bit of advice . I just wondered, the diamantes i see that people use on tiaras they have holes on the back to attach but do you glue them on as well and if so what is the best glue to use i have read some people cover the beads with glue not sure about that one anyway many thanks in advance.

      I've not used glue on tiara beads either - just thread them on wire, twist the stems, etc.

        Hi, I would usually just use a fine wire (usually 0.3mm non-tarnish wire, in either silver or gold colour which is really flexible and fine - so it is fine to use with pearls and other beads with very small holes. I haven't used glue on the tiaras that I have made, but if you are going to make sure you use epoxy glue not superglue, as superglue won't hold. i use Devcon 5 minute epoxy which is really good - dries quickly, will fill gaps and sets clear too.
        Have fun!
