  • tips for making

    i have recently become interested in making my own tiaras but do not know where to start, the only tutorials i can find are part of kits that you buy.

    can anyone reccomend a good book or two? or even a website if you know of one?

    I love pretty jewellery and tiaras do sparkle !!

    Thanks for checking this out

    Hi

    The beadstore.co.uk sells silver and gold tiara bases for you to wire-wrap or bead onto. Tiara's tend to be Wedding Craft so I suggest looking for Bridal Crafts through your internet search engine, or just 'Tiara Tutorial'.
    Having said that, they are few and far between: Search Press have a series of small books out called 'Twenty to Make' and there is one for tiara's. Its a good time of year for you to be researching this craft as Spring/Summer weddings are the most popular, and a lot of beading and jewellery magazines are starting to include tutorials on Bridal crafts. The June issue of Make Jewellery has a special on weddings, including tiara's, as well as other acessories.

    Hope this helps

      I don't know where you are but we are running workshops on tiaras and fascinators in the shop in Preston. New dates are on the website if you're in Lancashire.

      I agree about the bead mags though, some of them will have tutorials as it's the season for these.
      Bead Shop, 91 Liverpool Road, Penwortham, Preston, PR1 0QB, Lancashire. Mon-Fri 10am-5pm, Sat 10am-4pm, Sunday 11am-3pm.

        The June issue of beads and beyond have featured a whole section on bridal jewellery - and the instructions on how to make them are on their website

          Yup, Anita was faster than me - I think it's still in the shops, or has just been superseded by the newest issue.

            I have found a site called tiaramaking.com . i have not had chance to order but seem to have loads of good stuff a some very pretty feathers.
            There is also a decent book called 'tiaras- how to make with beads and wire' it gives the basics so then you just need to let your imagination go wild.

            just thought i would share the info for anyone else thats interested. x x
