A customer contacted me on Etsy and requested that I make a Black Swan inspired tiara for her Halloween costume, and I happily obliged, as it gave me the change to use black-colored items I had laying around, and the idea of a ballet-type tiara meant that I made a tiara that responds well to the wearer's movement.

I just got finished making this tiara, and I am so proud with how it turned out! The centerpiece used to be a hair ornament that I always loved but never wore much, so I decided to turn it into a tiara. The orange rhinestone bits are from earrings that I also wasn't wearing. The flowers are quite nice vintage ear clips, and they each have a little yellow rhinestone in the middle!
|The tiara itself is a touch top heavy because of the large rhinestone centerpiece!|

I have my own collection of tiaras I've made that contain too many sentimental items on them, and I can't sell them. I have no doubt that if I tried, I could sell them quite easily.

After a 6-month hiatus from selling items on Etsy, I have new and fresh ideas, and more items will begin to appear soon in my shop. Check out a tiara I made last night:
This is the style I want to start focusing on. I mixed vintage odds and ends of other jewelry, and wired it to a handmade tiara frame. I focused on the color blue for this piece, and mixed silver metal with it, giving it a bright, crisp look. It fits comfortably on the head, and the wire band is wrapped in cerulean blue ribbon, protecting the wearer's head from the metal band.
