Missy the second....

It's been a while since I have posted on Pretty Little Heads. Love Lily Dot has been taking up my time and preventing me from designing new pieces.

I am currently working on an order and whilst doing so, I realised how much I miss making my designs in wire and beading.

After working a lot with felt lately, picking up my wire and working with swarovski crystals and pearls feels like a real luxury. Don't get me wrong I love working with my felt designs, but there is something lovely about a luxurious item.
I think some new designs may be following soon!!

I also realise that I didn't post about my change to my Missy hairpin. I just wasn't happy with her, so after a few days or twisting and tweeking..... I introduce to you Missy the second!!

Beautiful Bride - Kat

For some time now I have been meaning to Blog about the lovely Kat and Mo, who I first posted about when I started this blog.
Kat and Mo were married in Sydney, Australia last December and Kat kindly asked me to design and make her Tiara and hairpins.
Finally I am so pleased to be able to share the photographs with you and show you how wonderful they both looked....

This is one of my new projects.
'LoveLilyDot' is my company selling handmade felt head pieces. I wanted to make some pieces that sat well alongside my Bridal head pieces. As a young child my mama introduced me to the flower fairies and I thought they were magical. 30 or so years down the line they have inspired me to produce hair pretties for bridesmaids and at the same time produce some everyday pieces for the little girls out there who like to have a little sweetness in their hair!

For the bridesmaids...
Felt flowers in hues of pale pink and cream...ready to be attached to a headband....

In hues of purple and cream....

Pale blue and cream.....

Felt hydrangea ready to be attached to a headband...

Or attached to a piece of ribbon to be worn as a felt corsage...

And for everyday prettiness....

Felt hydrangea in hues of pink on an elastic headband. If you head on over to my LoveLilyDot Facebook page now and 'LIKE' the page you can be in with a chance to win the felt hydrangea headband!

A work in progress.....

Lets not forget the Bridesmaids........

Along with my bridal pieces I have been working on some felt pieces for the bridesmaids....

This is just waiting to be stitched onto a headband...pretty hues of pale pink and cream....but that will not be the only colour option.......

Hues of purple and cream.....

and pale blue and cream..... this could be made in any colour required to match in with your colour scheme. 

This felt piece which has been made to resemble hydrageas, can either be atached to a headband....

Or atached to a piece of ribbon to be worn as a corsage on the wrist.

Working on a little something new.

I have felt a little uninspired of late with my head pieces....but then a sweet little something got my mind thinking......

I saw these beautiful hydrangeas and the delicateness of them made me think of beading work.....time to get on with some designing I think.

Lillian is my latest piece from 'The Enchanted Garden' collection.
Hand made glass leaves grouped together to give a grecian feel, with white swarovski pearls and crystals in clear and clear satin.
Entwined onto a headband covered with a silver lame ribbon.

This can also be made in gold.The leaves would still be made with clear glas beads, but the pearls would be cream, the wire gold and the ribbon covered band would also be gold.

Missy is a design that I have been working on over the past few weeks .I wanted to make something that wasn't too big and would add a little touch of glamour to any hairstyle.

Missy is a Swarovski pearl flower, surrounded by glass leaves and sprays of swarovski crystals in clear and clear satin with Swarovski pearls, entwined onto a silver hairpin.
This piece can be made with cream pearls and twisted onto gold wire on a gold pin if prefered.

Felicity is another new design, although much smaller than my other designs. She is made with a delicate Swarovski flower surrounded by glass beaded leaves and vines of swarovski and faux pearls. Entwined onto a gold hairpin.
This piece is great if you just want a little something special to add a hint of glamour.
Again you could have this made in silver instead.

More designs to follow shortly.

Twisted silver bugle beads are the staple of this piece.I have created a headband by entwining rows of bugle beads and supporting them into a band with swarovski crystals in two colours, clear and amythest to give a vintage look.
This piece can be worn on the forehead or pushed back onto the hair line.

I have used a silver lame ribbon to finish this piece, enabling the wearer to feel comfortable with how tight they want to wear the band.

Meet Quinnie....

She is made with twisted gold bugle beads sculpted to look like delicate leaves. There are large swarovski pearls, surrounded by smaller pearls, mounted onto a headband. This piece is designed to be worn to the front of the head to allow the leaves to delicately fall onto your forehead.
Quinnie can be made in either gold or silver and also made to fall either to the left or right side of your head. Your hair can be styled to cover the headband so that only the beaded piece can be seen.

Please allow two weeks for this piece to be made as all items are made to order.
I do not carry any stock. Also if there is something you would like to look a little different, I can work with you to make something bespoke.

Inbetween moving house with my family,I have been busy working away at more designs.

Meet Ava.
She has been designed with a circle of diamante surrounded by a spiral of rice pearls and bugle beads, laid onto a circle of soft cream feathers.
This piece is mounted onto a haircomb making it very easy to place in the hair on either side of your head.
It has been designed to fall slightly over the forehead for a lovely vintage feel.

This design is from 'The Enchanted Garden' collection.
Please allow two weeks for the piece to made, as everything I make is made to order.
