Can you post a picture of what this looks like or more specifically what kind of work you want changed on it?  What kind of metal (assuming it’s metal haha) is it?  By searching ‘how to restore old sterling silver’ or some other broad term will help yield more results & suggestions!

@futuremrsbevilacqua:  Maybe a seamstress would know what to do with it? If I were you I would go to one and see if they either can restore/update it or if they know someone who could. At the very least, they should be able to tell you where to look. Good luck!

First off, what a fantastic picture!  I would bring it to a local seamstress & see what kind of magic they can work.  Seriously, a good seamstress can make the seemingly impossible look great!

@futuremrsbevilacqua:  perhaps a dressmaker might have ideas

I am also wearing my grandmother’s tiara, but hers it primarily pearls and the backing is still sturdy so the only thing I will need to do is remake the veil, the tulle was too yellowed.

talk to a local bridal salon – they might have someone who makes custom head pieces or know a seamstress. Also a hat maker? though I don’t know too many of those
