Pin-Up Pins by Carol Wilcox Wells
Color Palette Featured:
Golden Shadow & Light Topaz Zircon
Pin-up Pins are simple and fun, both to make and to wear. A bezel is created with peyote stitch cupping a central jewel and studded with sew-on crystals. Semi-precious drops, crystals or pearls radiate between two rows of herringbone stitch for a finished starburst of color. Whether you decide on a tie tac finding covered with right angle weave or a pendant bale woven off the back with peyote stitch, you'll enjoy creating these glitzy pins and pendants.

Pin Up Pins shown with tie tack

Each of these color palettes were created by Carol and Melanie using briolettes, drops or pearls of the highest quality that give these pins a really flashy and sparkly fun look no matter how you decide to wear them.

The colors of the kits available as long as we are able to make them.  Expect a slight delay in orders for the pins as we make them for orders as we get them.  

Included instructions show you how to bead the Pin-Up Pins with a tie tac on the back or with a bale so you can use your favorite chain.  Shown here is a pin hung on a gold chain.  They hang great as well as stick to just about any spot you may want to add some flashy bling!

Skill Level: Knowledge of peyote, herringbone and right angle weave will be necessary to complete this piece.
