Think Pink

Sometimes it's good to be my own boss in a creative field.  Recently, on a whim, I decided to dye my hair.  Pink.

And my seven year old wanted in on the action.  Why not?  It's summer!  It'll fade out by school time.

The two year old desperately wanted in on the fun, too.  Luckily, we had some pink hairspray left over from Halloween.  A few washable spritzes, and she joined the fun.

A full line of sparkly accessories available for my use and the freedom to color my hair pink.  Yeah, being a tiara designer pretty much rocks.

New Product: Birdcage Veils!

I'm delighted to announce that we'll soon be offering birdcage veils on our website.  I love this classic look.  It has a vintage vibe, of course, but styled with today's gowns and accessories, looks perfectly modern and bold.

We'll be offering:

Birdcage/Visor veil, 9" long, bandeau style (attached with two small combs at either side of the head).

Birdcage veil, 9" long, gathered style (gathered on one single comb).

Birdcage Veil, 18" long, gathered style.

Bridal illusion and silk tulle birdcage veils will also be available.  Photos of those items coming soon.

Until my programmer/husband gets these items on the main Tradewind Tiaras website, feel free to email us at info[at] for information about pricing and styles.

Many thanks to my photography assistants, aged two and seven, who helped me set up the lighting.  This business is a family affair.  ;-)

We Love Custom Work! A Wish for a Birthday Tiara

We love working with brides here at Tradewind Tiaras, of course.  But it's so much fun when I get the chance to mix things up and design a special custom tiara for a different kind of event.

When Paula from Frog Prince Paperie told me the theme for her daughter's birthday, Make a Wish, I was completely enchanted.  I immediately started imagining a fabulously sparkly, pink and silver tiara (because that's what color wishes are, according to the birthday girl--how precious!).  This is what we came up with:

Is she not the cutest, happiest, sweetest little thing you've ever seen?  I just LOVE this photo (by the talented photographer John McLaughlin).

I'm happy to report that the birthday girl loved her sparkling crown, and I'm delighted we had a chance to help her wishes come true!

You really must see the rest of the photos from this utterly amazing Make a Wish party.  Every detail is better than the last.  I'm honored to have played my small part in this celebration.  Thanks for the opportunity, Paula!
