On Thursday I held a tiara making class at Hobbycraft, Carlisle. I do like making tiaras, but I am getting quite a collection of them now. These ones are the samples I took with me from other classes.
Time to play :) Accompanied by a huge brew (you could nearly class it as a bucket) supplied by the lovely folks at Hobbycraft and some sparklies. What more could you want? Cake, I hear you say? Yes, well, cake would have been good too :)
Lots of bead adding and wire twisting then occurred.
After that we add a row of crystals to hide the wire wrapped around the band, then do some magic with a knitting needle ;)
Push the strands back a bit more so it sits nicer on the head.
Now, all I need is a model to show it off.... and who better than our chief brew maker of the evening and Hobbycraft colleague, Lesley :) (she did take a bit of persuading)
Thanks Lesley :)
My student, Chris, made one in greens with a touch of brown, very 'wood nymph' like.
Would you like to make one for yourself? Give me a few days and I will upload a tutorial for you :)
