This ballet tiara is perfect for princesses and fairies. Flexible, it can wrap around a bun or be worn closer to the forehead for a more traditional crown look. Made with pink floral rhinestone slider beads, pink fire polish round and AB teardrop beads, gold filigree, and pink fire opal cabochons.
This tiara comes with a sturdy velvet lined storage box to protect it when not being worn.
I was super lucky to get to make swan headpieces for Ballet Conservatory of Asheville's Swan Lake. Drawing inspiration from the Australian Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and a tiny bit from the New York City Ballet; I created a slick maiden/swan hybrid headpiece. The design goal was to create headpiece that was somewhere between maiden and swan while keeping the face opened--no earmuff headpieces!
The design of this tiara was inspired by Odissi Indian classical dance filigree ornamentation and traditional La Bayadère ballet esthetic. The tiara is comprised of gold filigree with red and crystal aurora borealis rhinestones, red glass teardrop beads, red and crystal aurora borealis chaton montees, acrylic crystal aurora borealis rivoli rhinestones, Swarovski pear rhinestones, and Precosia cupchain banding. It is extremely lightweight and balanced.
I get a lot of questions regularly on how to make tiaras or if I hold classes on tiara making. Are you curious to see the process behind making a tiara? If so, check out this blog entry on the design and construction process I used to create my Black Swan cosplay tiara and bun topper.
