Here is the little golden tiara completely made up. I use welding wire (from the ironmongers), cut to size, and covered with gold ribbon, for the tiara base and I have glued the tatting onto it. I re-stiffened the tatting with a good spray of extra-hold hairspray to finish it off. The hairpsray gives the crystals a good shine as well as helping with the stiffening! I've held the tiara in the second picture so that you have an idea of the actual size.
