Making embellished hairpins is quick, easy and satisfying. It's a great summer accessory. Prefect for brides or anytime you need to dress up your coiffure.
Here are the Ingredients and Tools:
Silver Tone 16G Soft Wire
Silver Tone 28G Soft Wire
5mm Soft Grey Potato Pearl
2mm- Olive Gold Rainbow
Little Shadows- Bright Brass
11/0 Metal Seed Bead Gilding Matte
Ready Made Bobby Pins
Maxi- Shear Flush Wire Cutter
Bent Nose Pliers
Nylon Jaw Pliers
1. Cut 7" of 16G wire, mark center and use the barrel of the Sharpie Marker to make a u-shaped bend in the wire.
2. Use bent chain nose to bend "zig zags" on each side of the pin.
They don't have to be super even. I made two zig-zag sections.
5. Continue adding the beads until the pin is embellished to your liking. Tuck in excess wire and clip away ends. Cut ends of the pin flush and file smooth using the nail file.
The result is a fun and stylish pin, ready for an updo!
