I had some pink netting in stock from a previous unrelated project, and I think that's where the inspiration came from. I wanted to see if I could do something pretty with it. I wanted to mix it with white tones though, so that it could still be worn with a white wedding dress. Combined with a bit of pink in a floral bouquet, or with a pink sash, it would look beautiful I think.
The pretty heart you see here is a vintage pendant that I thought was perfect for here, to add a little pop of brighter color and a little sparkle to the back of the headpiece. It really picks up the romantic nature of the piece too.
The headband part is a mix of pearls and sequin trim.
I had some other vintage jewelry elements with the same color of pink, so I decided to make a jewelry set as well, that could be worn to coordinate with the headpiece if the bride chose to.
I definitely feel that Pink Pearls by Tamara is going to carry a more extensive line of pink bridal headpieces, hair jewels, jewelry sets and accessories. It resonated with me as something that should be a signature part of my collection. There's still the softness and romance, but with a little color, a little uniqueness. I can't wait to do more!
What do you think - would you wear a pink (or other colored) bridal hairpiece?
