DESCRIPTION:

This lovely tiara comes from a superb range of stunningly beautiful bespoke hair accessories which are all either vintage or hand made to order for clients to buy or hire. These wonderfully intricate handmade fashion accessories and wedding tiaras are incredibly gorgeous and fabulously unique. They are made from a range of the finest materials including exquisite antique beads, seed pearls and Swarovski crystals often combined with delicate hand tooled silk flowers.

This beautiful vintage tiara dates from the 1950s or 1960s. It is made from gold tone metal and features a rhinestone encrusted double bow motif in the centre front mounted upon a double band or rhinestones. This lovely accessory may be worn either across the forehead bandeau style or as a regular tiara placed further back on the head. The central bow may also be turned either way when in wear.

The rhinestone encrustation continues right to the extremities of this lovely ornament where there are small gold tone loops for the insertion of hairpins to hold it in place.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Stunningly gorgeous and truly unique, these sparkling bridal hair accessories convey a true sense of timeless beauty and elegance. The crowning glory of the bride, the range of bridal tiaras offer an insight into the opulent and exquisite world of Basia Zarzycka, renowned across the globe as one of the leading makers and designers of couture wedding dresses and gothic wedding gowns.

Basia Zarzycka is of Polish ancestry but was born in the United Kingdom. After graduating from the prestigious Goldsmiths College with a BA in embroidery and textiles Basia went on to gain her Master of Arts (Fashion & constructed textiles) from Birmingham university.

Basis’s fashion career sprang from humble beginnings on a stall in London’s Bermondsy Antiques Market. This was followed by a shop in the famous Antiquarious indoor market in fashionable Chelsea. It was here that Basia began to build a reputation for specializing in bridal and glamorous vintage evening dresses and antique hair accessories which were hired out for society weddings.

Her pretty Sloane Square shop opened in 1999. She designs for clients ranging from foreign Royalty to international pop stars and some of the biggest names in Hollywood, creating bespoke, innovative designs from conception through to completion to the highest standard of workmanship. As well as bespoke and couture wedding dresses she also makes bridal tiaras and sells vintage accessories and antique jewelry, perfect for putting the prettifying touches to any bridal outfit.
