Thank you! Ask away with any questions!
dulie501 asked:
Do you have pattern instructions for this beautiful comb? If so, I would like to purchase from you.
chrdesigns answered:
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".
MrsShoesPgh asked:
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.
chrdesigns answered:
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
