About this design:

This is another area of newness for me. I had a request by a friend to make hatpins so these are my first attempts. I opted to by the larger pins first to see how I liked working on them.

    Thanks for the support. I agree that the ones with the birds are the best. I did a bunch of searching for hatpins that I can bead. The only thing is getting the crimp cover over the crimp was the hardest thing because the crimp wasn’t a normal shape. So it took a bit of practice.
