I thought it was high time I shared with you some of the projects I've been making lately. Now, you may or may not be dying to see the tiara I made myself for my wedding, so here is a photo. It was a simple wire wrapping project with glass flower beads in clears, pearls and whites. I have to say, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out!
(You may also notice the dashing knitted tie my husband is wearing - yep, that's my handiwork too).
I've also been inspired by our stunning cover of the May issue of MJ, and have been dying to have a go at some soutache. I had some satin cord anyway, so I thought I would have a go with that. It, like us all, is a work in progress, so it's a bit wibbly still (possibly due to the fact that I'm not using proper soutache cord!)
