Bella's Bridal Barrette

Designed by Artbeads

Inspired by Stephanie Meyer's final installment of the Twilight book series, we created this hair clip to replicate Bella's bridal headpiece with the help of Swarovski crystals and Gilders Paste. You can add tulle to your own and walk down the aisle and sparkle just like Bella!

Step one:
Apply white Gilders Paste to the Kabela antique brass German Bianca scalloped oval filigree link and allow to dry. Read our Handy Tip on how to use Gilders Paste if you need help. Buff with a cloth once dry, and apply a layer of silver Gilders Paste to the link. Allow to dry and buff once more.

Step two:
Use a jewel setter and Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to attach one Crystal Swarovski XILION rose flatback to the outer edges of the Kabela link, and one to the center of each of its four ends. Glue six Cobalt Swarovski XILION rose flatbacks around the four Crystal flatbacks to create flower shapes. Allow the glue to dry.

Step three:
Attach the link to a barrette that is an appropriate size to match the link using E6000 glue and allow to dry.

Estimated time: Less than 1 hour (plus dry time)
