Katherine's Dabblings

Bracelets


made with safety pins and beads. Saw this at a bead fair recently and thought it was quite effective and some (cheat) beading that I actually might be able to do (Lol) so gave it a go. The prong of the safety pin is loaded with beads and fastened. The head is then squashed slightly from the sides in to form a sealed hole in the centre of the head. These are all threaded with clear elastic thread, alternating top and bottom on each pin and with a bead also between each pin.

What an interesting idea Katherine, I've never seen this before. I like the idea of 'cheat' beading. I end up with more on the floor than on the project.
