OMG Rhinestones!

My brass banding came in the mail today.  That allowed me to do some quick sketching and choose the best rhinestones for the design's spacing.
Jewelry Sketch

Long story short, I'll be able to make the tiara and matching comb, a necklace, two bracelets, and earrings for about the same price as a single collet necklace.  Win!  I was originally hoping to create it with pink rhinestones (since my silk is a pinky-peachy-gold) but I wasn't thrilled with how the pinks looked together on screen.  So I chose emerald instead.  I think it'll be an excellent contrast for this outfit.  I've also got some emerald silk in the stash that could become a future Regency dress, and this jewelry will go with that as well.

I like where this is going!!

It is going to be lovely!

Thanks! I can't wait to get everything in the mail and start assembling!

I can't wait to see how they turn out!

AHHH! It's the great tiara frenzy of '15! lol!

Is it bad that my first thought was, "We should totally do a meetup of all the handmade tiara creators." Then I realized, "Duh, most of us are going to the concert so there already is a meetup." LOL I'm obviously super sharp today.
