ABOUT:
Owner, Julie attended York University, Toronto and the University of Leeds, England for a BFA in Visual Arts, specializing in sculpture. She currently works as a teacher, living near Ilderton, Ontario with her husband, son, and two budgies.


MATERIALS:
The materials used have been very carefully selected. Sterling Silver has been used for any components which will be in direct contact with skin. Other elements of the jewelry, such as wire in tiaras, are non-tarnishing silver plated copper. The reason for this choice is that sterling silver tarnishes, and tiaras need to shine for that special day and beyond!

The reason for this choice is that sterling silver tarnishes, and tiaras need to shine for that special day and beyond!

Beads used are high quality fire polished crystals. Why not Swarovski crystals? After careful inspection of Swarovski crystals next to Austrian fire polished crystals, it was resolved that there was no visible difference. Why pay more than five times the price for the same effect?

Freshwater and glass pearls are both used. Although freshwater pearls are beautiful, they need to be strung onto silk thread to prevent damage to the pearl. For this reason, they are not able to be used in all designs.


CUSTOM ORDERS:
When you purchase something from Glow Tiaras, it is made just for you! For this reason, customizing your order is very easy and invited!

The cost for labor is included in the cost of an item. So if you see something you almost like, there is no extra charge to make the same design from different materials, providing I have what you are looking for in stock.

If you are interested in a custom design order, please contact me. I love working from photographs of beadwork on dresses, or of other styles you've seen somewhere else and liked.


COMMISSIONS:
Designing and creating tiaras and jewelry to match or compliment beadwork on wedding gowns, etc. is our passion!

I charge $15/hour for design work, then the cost of materials and labor. Please contact me with information and photos (if possible) if you are interested in a quote.


SHIPPING:
Since almost all items from Glow Tiaras are specially created upon order, please allow 1-2 weeks before product ships. Rush orders are possible upon request.

All shipping costs quoted are for ExpressPost which ships in 2-3 business days and provides insurance on your items. If you would prefer to save money and have your package shipped by regular post, I would be happy to give you a quote.

Thanks for visiting!
