1920s-Inspired Wedding Hair Jewelry

1920s-Inspired Wedding Hair Jewelry

I currently have several of my jewelry sets displayed at a wedding accessories shop. The owner also asked me if I could make up a 1920s-style bridal headpiece to display in her store, as someone had expressed interest in that style a while ago.

The picture she showed me for inspiration had some silver in the piece, and I wanted to include that too. Fortunately, I found some silver lace leaves left over from a jewelry line I created last Christmas, and they worked beautifully here.

This piece was made from a combination of different things I had in my stash. The focal area started with an ivory lace flower, and I built from that, including fluffy feathers and pieces of chain. It was a vintage look in a combination of ivory, white and silver tones.

I love it when I am able to pull out a variety of things from my stash for a project, some of which I’ve had for a long time, not have to buy anything, and end up with a pretty piece in the end!

  1. I didn’t think to mention that the focal area is worn at the side of the head, not the back. Some may have assumed that, because of the style of that era, but not necessarily everybody.

  2. Andrea says:

    Your pieces are always so lovely Tamara and this really displays the beauty and femininity of that era. I love your style of building the pieces you create, layer by layer.

  3. Thank you so much, Andrea! This was a fun project to take on, probably not one I would have done on my own. It’s also neat to go on a treasure hunt through your stash to see what you’ve got that you can layer up to come up with a cohesive beautiful piece.
