This pin was a lot of fun to make. After so many sedate and corporate brooches, I needed to break out! Shake up the bead boxes and create something dangerous. Well, it looks dangerous to me…and given the number of times I stuck myself with the needle while stitching this…it was dangerous!
Those teensy red beads that make up the picots on the edges of the crystals are antiques, I am told. Something from the 20s or maybe 30s? They certainly are tiny little devils.
