Wedding Head Dresses by Yoonie

These have been keeping me busy last month. A range of simple wedding and dinner-wear head dresses for my nieces new venture into her make-up career. I like the beading work, maybe I should try to do some tiaras for flower girls. I have composed some of them with smaller versions of the same theme so Kathleen can use it for any hair styles.
Velvet orchids with beaded petals.

I love how the crystals look right in the middle of this chrysanthemum. Very nice piece if you're wearing an oriental styled cheongsam.

A bridal piece. I have them beaded in three separate pieces and in variating sizes. To be pinned on a chignon or an elegant updo.

Similar to the ones I made for Gracie's wedding. These are softer in blush pink and embellished with chinese buttons.
Perhaps for a masquerade party. We even have matching masks with feathers and gems.
A white wedding hair piece. Antique lace and beading work. Lace works wonders on hair dresses. You can actually form the lace to the shape of your hair style. I thought they looked good as earrings as well.
A playful lavender piece. I love how the tendrils flow down to the ears.
Blue is always a favourite colour to wear. Flirtatious little hairpiece with a dangling bead at the end.
Spanish themed. This bloom will looks wonderful tucked under flowing curly hair on one side. A good profile if you're thinking about photoshoots.
Sparkly fireworks and in three separate varying sizes. Perfect for the black cocktail dress!

Another azure creation. Simple beading with the centre of attention- a thread wrapped bead for a rustic look.
This is my favourite. Shiny sea shells with a single crystal. The colours of the ocean, perfect for a sea-themed dinner.

Me and my lace pieces. I have been storing these pieces of lace and I love how the lace tucks in like soft petals in between. For a romantic dinner for two?
Moulin rouge styled headpiece. This is suitable for short hair bobs. A dramatic piece for theatre premiers, perhaps?!
