    Flo & Percy tiaras are individually created from vintage jewellery dating from Victoriana through to the 1980’s. Every tiara is an original since every piece of jewellery is individually sourced.

      The tiaras are beeeaaauutiful!!
      Quite different too, especially the art nouveau one.Good variety with design, colours and price range.
      I also love the way you put a history of Flo and Percy, adds and element of history and quality to things.

      I dont suppose youd let us know where you get your beads, rhinestones etc from?

          Thanks for sharing.

          I have trawled the web for sites that sell rhinestones etc , I can never get exactly what I want.
          America has the best stuff but Im always worried about dealings overseas.

          I have been known ot buy broken necklaces from charity shops, fix them , then decide to take them apart, undoing my own work!

                I ljust ike to muck about with sparkles really.
                I design clothes so Id try to source the exact stones for the outfit,sew ons are so tough to find!!I prefer to suffer for my art so I like the idea of sew ons,not iron on diamontes.

                Im going through a card making pahase at the moment, I hope it lasts as I have spent a small fortune on stamps and inks, but id like to incorporate sewn things.

                Basically as long as its gorgeous, sparkly, historical looking and cheap, I love it.

                  cards

                  I used to make cards. I sold them to a shop for £1.25 each and they sold them on for £3.50! Its just not worth trying to make money out of it, but i still make them for friends, its nice to have a hobby you enjoy, most people i know don't have that. I would go insane if i didn't have a creative outlet. I used to buy my blank cards at craftcreations.co.uk. I found them to be the cheapest!
