Homage to a 1920’s Wedding: Bridal Hair Jewelry
by Tamara Summers.

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!
