  • Wire help please.

    After making a tiara, and getting my daughter to try it on, some wire ends of things I have added on the band
    always seem to get stuck to her hair.
    This is bothering me, I know that you will not take off a tiara until the wedding is over, but I wish to know if there is something I can do to avoid this.
    These wire endings are few and tiny, but somehow they manage to get stuck to hair . I was thinking of some sort of glue to place on the tip, where I have cut the wires, but it must be something that will not tarnish the work.
    Any suggestions?
    Thank you.

    try and tuck your ends under wire bining. We always use a dab (and I mean a tiny dab) of two part apoxy resin glue on our tiaras to keep ends in place. Good luck!

      It depends on the style but you could cover the ends - including the wrapping and the band with some ribbon. You can get it in 3mm widths which would be thin enough to go between the uprights.

        i always make sure the ends are on the outside of the band then usually wire wrap around them

          Thanks for your help. I think, that the mistake I am making, is leaving the ends on the inside, I will try on the outside, then get my dd to try them on

            Just came back and read this again and had some more thoughts.
            How about threading the end of the wire along the band underneath the wrapped wires and then cut as close to the wire over the top as you can so the end is tucked away.
            You could even wind the end of the wire into a fairly tight flat coil and position it at the back so it won't dig in. Depending on the design you could leave the coils on the front as part of the pattern.

              depending on the wire, beads and design you might be able to twist the wire back up a stem so the end is at the top hidden by a bead and nowhere near the hair. The first end isnt so much of a problem as you can hold it flat to the band and wrap around it.
