  • 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
    Its pretty AND it sparkles !!! me want

    The 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.

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          Yup, Anita was faster than me - I think it's still in the shops, or has just been superseded by the newest issue.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