Andrea has been creating and selling Tiara’s professionally since the mid 1980’s, and teaching other how to do the same since 1995, although you will not find any links to her name as a Tiara designer!
And that in itself is by design! One of the ways Andrea makes money is by selling her Tiara’s to ‘other’ designers, as well as Bridal outlets. This allows them to brand the Tiara’s anyway they choose. Andrea runs ‘On Demand’ Tiara making workshops in the UK, and has also taught workshops in Spain & the US
As well as running her successful Tiara Design business, Andrea is an eBay Powerseller with over 26,800 positive feedback, trading under the name of ‘charm-shop-uk’ And even though Andrea sells a lot of charms, beads and findings through her eBay shop ‘Crafty-Beads-Café’ she doesn’t sell her Tiara’s on there. Andrea really likes to keep the two business’s separate.
