Beautiful Hatpins ...

Hi Everybody,

Over the weekend I have been busy making some more of the Hat pins that I like to add to my more feminine cards

I love making these and end up with quite a lot because I get carried away with the designs

I think they make a really lovely touch to a card
Because they have end caps over the sharp point they can be removed from the card and worn on the recipients lapel

I buy 3" silver pins and create the designs myself but the basic hat pin is from the Sparkles Group 





You will find them in the FINDINGS section on their website along with beads and charms too if you need them

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  12. Morning, Christina,
    What beautiful pins...you've been really busy over the weekend making all of those. It's something that I've not tried myself as I'm sure that I wouldn't be able to make them as beautiful as you can :)
