    OK! It's official then! TIARA/BILLIMENT/CORONET/CROWN Design Contest!

    How do these work for "rules"?

    1. Design and create the adornment of your choice, using pearls as your primary gems.

    2. Other gemstones and materials can be included.

    3. Post pictures, detailing the materials used and any design challenges. A picture of you wearing your creation would be delightful!

    4. Contest starts now, and will end on Feburary 14, 2011. Valentine's Day will be perfect to make our debut in our new Pearl Adornments!

    5. ALL contestants will receive an award (not yet decided on) for participating!

    6, Multiple entries allowed.

    Any suggestions and comments? These rules can be modified! I hope this will give us something fun to work on through those dreary days of January!

    can it be ones already made? I have a couple of fairly fancy ones to kick things off and they need re-snapping

    Wendy,

    Fine with me, it's all in good fun! Re-snap away! Yes, more than one entry is okay also.

    Sarah,

    Thank you for the generous offer of a top prize! We'll find someone who would be willing to judge; it won't be me, though! Perhaps we can put up a poll allowing each P-G member to vote for their favorite.

    Default The whole enchilada, Sarah

    Suspect that is your head upon which this exquisite piece sits? Wonder if you'd show the whole piece in your hair... or whomever's hair. It's magical, and makes me want something with pearls and coral.

    Kathleen: As a Duchesse... I am sure you understand, "a princess never tells!"

    I agree with Pattye.. variety will make this more fun!
    I have been mulling the idea around in my head (ha ha, not on it) and was thinking that with out having the tools to solder metal and set pearls, that all other sorts of materials could be used... such as coat hanger wire, and elastic (or materials used for flower arranging). I have not gotten much further than the ideas bubbling around, but I think that as long as it involves pearls and you had fun making it... it will be a worthy and precious contender. Drawings will allow for more variety and less mess and I am really looking forward to this!
    Thanks for playing!
    Cheers, Sarah

    What a beautiful tiara! I think a pearl tiara (or billiment) is a wonderful hair accessory for a wedding dress.

    Ivona,

    That's so charming and wearable! I have a Granddaughter that would love one like that! Glitter is very much in!! What did you use for a base? Nice of her to model for us, too.
