Ballet tiaras

I have made quite a few tiaras lately, some to go with tutus and some just to try some new designs. Here are some photos, kindly modeled by Annie Jones, any with white wire showing will be painted to match their owner's hair colour.

Wonderful results fromTutu making course

I have just spent two days with four lovely women from Ballarat and I am truly amazed at how much they accomplished. They all went home with made, tacked and partly decorated tutus and headdresses, I had a great time and hope they did too. They have promised me photos of the tutus when they are totally finished.
Well done to Beth, Michelle, Justine and Bri. Their daughters and students are very lucky.
