Do you have pattern instructions for this beautiful comb? If so, I would like to purchase from you.

Oh, I'm afraid I don't! If you just start by wrapping the 30 gauge wire around the comb to start the base, leaving both ends of wire to start adding crystals and pearls and teardrops. I wind the short ends of the remaining wire around the undersurface of the pearls to hide them and to form stronger "stems".

Where can you find the crystals and pearls for this lovely design? I've been attempting something for my daughter's wedding next June. I wish there was somewhere that offered directions/instructions.

Hi there, I think you could find almost all of the components you would need at Fusionbeads.com, You need center drilled keishi pearls, tiny 2.5mm Swarovski crystals, larger 5 or 6 mm bicone crystals, tiny frosted teardrops and 30 gauge parawire. You may have to find the comb itself elsewhere, I bought mine from an Etsy shop. I simply start by wrapping the comb with the wire and adding the componets, threading the wire through the pearl, then a tiny crystal then back again through the hole. It is a very organic--ie--free form process. I wrap the loose ends of wire around the bases of the pearls to strengthen and hide the ends of the wire. co shop
