Hi Dan, I just made a couple of tiaras for a bridal boutique. For
support/base I used a 1 memory wire and 1 21 Ga sterling wire
threaded through 6 Swarovski diamante stones at equal intervals. In
between the diamantes I covered each wire with liquid silver beads.
You can pull the silver wire into a crown-like triangles add some
crystals, dangles, etc. The nice thing is that the memory wire can
stay on the head without any pins, and then you can wear the tiara
as a neckalce too.
