Beaded Brooches


I recently purchased a great book called "Wild Women" by Sara Lawrence. She has some wonderful ideas for making beaded pins. These pins are my first attempt and have been fun to make. The pins are about 3" tall.

Well doen Jacq
I have made some Wild WOmen brooches too in the last year and received some in a swap (pics of 2 of which are my latest entry on my blog if you wan tto look) watch out you don't get addicted to them though haha! I also got to meet Sarah Lawrence last August as she was here in Perth Western Australia for our big craft fair....a lovely lady.

Love these!! I'm not much of a brooch wearer, but I can see adding these on to a journal cover :)

Hi, Jacq. I'm not surprised that your first attempts look like they were made by a seasoned pro. Good for you! Beautiful!

Thanks for sharing.
