Lunch Lady Jan has asked that I show the pins I beaded recently in close-up. No problem, Jan, here they are up close and huge, I hope.
First, the longer pins (2.25"/5.5cm) with the heart shaped heads - bought from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Second, the smaller pins (1.25"/3.5cm) with round heads - bought from my local department store.
As you can see, all I have done to make the pins is thread the beads, starting and finishing with a small bead, aiming for colour combinations that co-ordinate. I use a clear gloss finish glue to fix the beads securely.
Right, that's me for today. I did get a card finished today so that's progress ... the mojo is back :) I have a first appointment with a physiotherapist tomorrow ... I'm not sure how I'll feel after but hopefully I'll be back fit to post the card and visit more WOYWWers later in the day.
In the meantime, happy crafting,
