Kumiko Tiara

Designed by: Mary Achurra

Difficulty: Intermediate

Rating: 0 Stars

This beautiful tiara is perfect for a little girl, or as a delicate addition to a special occasion's outfit. With stunning Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls, it is reminiscent of a cherry blossom tree in full bloom.

Step 1

Take approx. 15cm of wire to create your first crystal flower section. Thread on 6 crystal rondelle beads and bring to the centre of the wire. Bring round into a circle. Thread the end of wire back through 3 beads, add an aqua bicone and place in the middle. Bring the ends together and twist to keep the circle in place.

Step 2

Repeat step 1 to create a total of 7 crystal flowers. Position one at the centre of the band and place it at the highest point you'd like your tiara to reach. Now wrap around, joining the double tiara band together. Do the same with the other flowers, placing 3 either side of this centre flower getting closer to the tiara band at the edges.

Step 3

Now make 4 pearl flowers. Thread 6 pearl beads each on to a 15cm piece of wire. Twist each one on to a small 'stalk'.  Now thread on a 3mm bicone bead and twist another 'stalk'. Arrange the beads in a flower shape with the crystal in the centre and twist all the ends together. For more help watch the video tutorial below.

Step 4

Once you have made 4 pearl flowers position them between the centre 5 crystal flowers and twist on to the band. Now decorate with other crystals on wire 'stalks' until the tiara fills out. 

Step 5

To finish, thread approx. 25 rondelle beads on to the wire and wrap around the band positioning the beads as you go.
