Almost wedding season...
We created this tiara with a selection of our freshwater pearls and faceted cubic zirconia stones set into simple silver snaptite settings. These snaptite settings are fantastic as they have pre notched tensioned claws and you can literally push the stone in the setting and it will 'snap' and hold it tight. We wire wrapped these onto the tiara base.
Things you will need to make a tiara like this:
Fine silver plated wire (0.3mm diameter is good for wire wrapping things onto the base)
A thicker silver plated wire (to create the plait on this design we used 1mm diameter)
Cubic Zirconia faceted stones
