Above Is The Actual Tiara You Will Receive
Vivienne Heirloom Tiara
Heirloom Tiaras are constructed around a vintage or antique piece of jewellery...these are 'upcycled' and made into something unique and amazing for today's bride. These pieces are limited to the vagaries of availability and condition of old pieces of jewellery, many of which are a once in a lifetime find...this means that the probability is that this piece can never be repeated.
Vivienne Heirloom Tiara - I started with a gorgeous goldtone 1980's
cross-style brooch featuring Swarovski crystal and worked with a comfortable handmade
split base to give the band its width, adding motifs made of Swarovski crystal
pearls, Swarovski crystal and gold-lined rocailles - this one really taxed me
because I felt that the brooch needed the rest of the tiara to reflect its opulent
appearance, which led me to experimenting with shapes and new crystal motifs...in
the end this worked out after hours and hours of playing with the components,
which were then wired into the brooch before these were embellished with fine
goldtone wires decorated with rocailles and Swarovski before the band was beaded
with goldtone rocailles.
The band can be worn either 'Alice-band' style or as a tiara.
The tiara measures approx. 2.25 inches / 5.5 cm at its widest part.
