It is completely handmade, from the double headband to the hand-beaded fringe to the detailed rose.
The headband is made from a cream and off-gold metallic brocade. I purchased it from a local vendor whose sales benefit an orphanage in Africa (good deeds and beauty, my favorite things.)
I hand-beaded the bands with a mix of freshwater pearls, antique beads, antique sequins and set rhinestones from the 30s-40s.
The bands are will be formed to your measurements and can be worn either lower on the forehead for an Alphonse Mucha-esque look or further back for an antiquarian Grecian look. Cream grosgrain ribbons ties fasten the piece, and can be hidden under your hair or incorporated into your hairstyle.
The flower is ivory silk , which I accented with matching silk rosettes, antique beading, antique lace appliques and hand-beaded fringe. The beads themselves are a mix of new and antique beads.
This whole piece is made with the utmost care and love. Every bit was hand-stitched, measured, positioned and stitched again. This is truly an heirloom piece. You may be able to find the "look" elsewhere but it will be completely without the quality and attention to detail of this piece.
If this piece is too much or too little for your desired vision, please contact me! I love custom work and I can work within your budget to achieve your fantasy wedding piece!
Thank you for looking!
