Layne's Hair Comb
Layne is a hairdresser that I have known since elementary school. She initially thought she wanted beaded shoes, but she decided that she'd rather have hair combs for her and her bridesmaids (sisters). I think it was an excellent choice, shoes get trashed at weddings (particularly outdoor ones) and that's a lot of beadwork to get dirty.
Heidi wanted 2 hair combs with a long silk veil attached. I made the veil with snaps so that she could wear the combs individually also. the below comb had a match so that it fit on either side of her hairdo. I'm particularly fond of gold, so I was excited to do a white and gold design for this commission.
In the same lines of hair pieces I also made Heidi's daughter's hair clip for her baptism. The baby hair clip was much tinier with the smallest beads I can peyote stitch with, I blogged about it this winter HERE.
