    I quite like them both - not to fussy.... the first one looks a bit 'beauty pageant' to me - in that you could fit a really big fringe in between the 'design' and still look great Might sell well in America?

      I think they are very pretty and not too over the top. My 10 year old daughter has just looked over my shoulder to be nosey and her reaction.....


      COOOOOLLLLLL!!!

      She obviously likes them too!

        I like it, but not really on one side! if you are going to have it in the middle then just taper it along a bit and it will look fab

        the trend at the moment is for side tiaras but not sticking up sort of flat to the head like a headband and you'd have things coming off both sides, so that could be something to try?

          I like it, I prefer it as a middle tiara but that is because I have a symmetrical mind.
          Most side tiara's I have seen have an asymmetric design, with taller stalks at one side bending over - either top or bottom - and shorter stalks at the other side. A bit like Dutchess Camilla's one but not so OTT.
          The colours are really pretty and I like the way you have twisted the stalks.

            I think it would perhaps be the brides preference, side or central and how she would wear her hair.

            However its worn its absolutely gorgeous! So pretty, made beautifully!
            I love it.

              tiaras in general look better starting at a centre height and them graduating down so that they finish when they dissapear into the hairline, most people prefer that, they dont want to see the band.

              try wrapping a single row of little crystals along the band, looks pretty, hides the wire and is easy to do

                Combine that with relatives gushing about my kids jewellery and saying I should focus on that, there's too many signs my niche should be childrens jewellery recently... Problem is, I really don't like children!! LOL
                This isn't a bad idea you know. You don't need to like kids to sell to them, although it helps to look like you like them!!!

                Do you sell at craft fairs? If so, it would certainly set you apart from the competition, and people do buy for their kids when they won't always buy for themselves! And then there's school fairs, village fetes, children's shops...

                Oh, by the way, I love the tiaras!!

                  You can also use ribbon to hide the wires. I managed to find a silver metallic ribbon in the local sewing shop about 5mm wide which covers them neatly.

                    Have updated post #1 with a new pic of the finished item... Feel free to let me know your thoughts!
                    It's really nice It's simple and not overly bling - and fits really well!
