A tiara is the hallmark of grace and distinction – worn for centuries by nobility and still favored by movie stars, high society, and modern brides. The desire to adorn one’s head with beauty first manifested itself with the creation of wreaths of foliage and flowers. Eventually, these plants began to take on a deeper symbolism and were rendered to a precious art form when smelting and refining of metals began.
Drawing from the past, these beautiful pieces pull together a study of old-world crowns, tiaras & wedding veils passionately made by hand as a revival of traditional, artistic craftsmanship. Each piece is silhouetted, showing details of skilled craftsmanship with exquisite fabrics and unique textures rarely seen today. These tiaras, crowns and veils fit for a Shakespeare heroin, bridge the gap between the past and the modern world for the unconventional bride.
