Today's Challenge - Pins

About this design:

I had a half-dream this morning (kinda awake, kinda dozing)about making a guitar shape with wire. Yes, it's been done before...I did some checking on Etsy and Artfire. But I decided to do it as a pin, not a pendant or earrings. The first one I did was the "acoustic" guitar with pink crystals. The next was the 'fender-type' with blue Swarovskis. Yep, they are pins.


16g non-tarnish wire (LB); 24g silver wire; Swarovski crystals

    These are amazing! My fiancé plays a Fender ( he actually has a few guitars) and would definitely wear something like his pinned to his hoodie or his guitar bag. He saw them and was really impressed, too! Great job, keep it up! =^___^=

    Don’t you just love the “kinda awake, kinda dozing” ideas that come early morning? I get these too and have paper and pencil by the bed to jot them down before I forget them! These are great–love what you did here! :)
