Beaded Sweater & Shawl Pins

Found another way this week to use up some gemstones and beads in a pretty unique way.
I saw some oversized safety pins at a hobby store that already had 3 hoops attached for dangles. So I bought a few and put my creative cap on and came up with a Fall color theme and a Christmas theme for sweater/shawl pins.
Not heavy at all but certainly need to be on a sturdy coat/shawl/sweater. Great way to add some color to an otherwise plain outfit I think!
Used 20 guage wire and even some color coated wire for the Christmas pin. Mom already saw the Christmas one and claimed dibs on it… Can’t wait to show them to the folks at work!
