New "Goodies" ...

Hi Everybody,

A few days ago I mentioned that I was getting some new "Goodies" from China to make my Hatpins

Well they have started arriving now and I am so pleased with them all.

I have bought lots of Tibetan Silver and the hatpins they produce are gorgeous.
I have tried to get as close as I can to the pins to show you what I mean.

These silver filigree beads are so opulent  but I have to tell you that they are not cheap.

And all your costs need to be calculated carefully if you are going to sell them.

If you are adding them to a card be sure to tell your recipient that they can be removed and worn as a fabulous gift.

These will be going in both "My Shop"  and Etsy  later once I have worked out a fair price for them.

I will make a card and add a hatpin to it to show you the beautiful look they give to your designs.

Aaaand  .... there is still more to come yet so I will show you that when it arrives.

Ooooh !! It will  be like Christmas all over again .....

There is still time to enter for the Birthday "Give Away"   add your name for one of two chances to win the prize

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. I think this hatpins are the nicest I've seen. Worth paying a bit extra for something as beautiful as these beads. Look forward to seeing the video. I love them on the cards but here in Australian they don't seem to get used - quite a shame.

  2. These pins are gorgeous and no doubt will grace any of your beautiful cards.

  3. Hi Christina these are lovely. Can't wait to see the video. X

  4. Morning Christine,
    Wow! beautiful hat pins, love them.

  5. Beautiful pins Christina. Can you recommend a supplier where these items are available to purchase. I know you said they came from China and were expensive but sometimes it's worth paying extra.

  15. Hi Christina I love the pins .I also make my own,but I have difficult finding the stick part,did they come made up ,or did you make them yourself? Like Rose would like to know ,where you bought them,I know you said China.
    As Rose says you do not mind ,when you get quality.
    I hope your blog has grown, I love your step by step on the videos.,you put so much into inspiring us all.I do do not leave comments very often,but now I have my new glasses,and can read.

  16. I do so look forward to your daily posts Christina, especially when you come up with such gorgeous gems as these! What beauties they are too! It sounds like a little out of my range expense wise, but I am sure there will be cheaper alternatives here in the UK, though I doubt they will be anywhere near as gorgeous as these. Thanks so much for sharing with us! xxx

  17. Love your new pins, a gift in themselves.xx
