I made this bridal comb late one night. I started round 11pm by the time and finished at 1.30am. the only one's awake was myself and my cat Bobby, who normally sleeps next to the radiator, who can blame him with the awful weather we have been having. Today he has sneaked up onto my bed, grrrr..
I chose to add some red Swarovski crystal bicone beads and made them into beaded flowers, as red is one of the hottest bridal colours this year! I made the bead and crystal bead sprays first, using 0.4mm silver plated beading wire. When I felt I'd made enough, I laid them against the comb and played around with them, till I was happy with the layout. Then I began to attach each spray, one at a time. I'm very happy with the result.
When do you do your crafting, are you a night person like me, or you can craft anytime of the day?
