I made this a few years ago for a friend and just unearthed the picture. It's made with 18, 22, and 28 gauge copper wire and beads mostly salvaged from vintage jewelry--glass, jade, carnelian, amethyst, pearl, garnet, and others I'm likely forgetting.


Another style of tiara, which I made for this tutorial in Cerise Magazine (modeled by a very patient friend and her curly blonde wig):


More styles and designs as I get around to unearthing and taking pictures, assuming people are interested...

I'm not sure about the proper etiquette, either, but I'd certainly have no problem with you posting it in this thread, for what it's worth!

Thank you!

Most of the "skills" that went into making that were very basic wirework--it's really just a matter of practicing enough to be able to improvise with techniques and tricks out of their intended contexts.
