I love the wild, blingy pins that you can find, but don’t wear pins anymore.
I remove the backs, file any sharp points off and attach them any way that I can to a necklace of strung beads, matching the pins as closely as I can with beads that I have and trying to incorporate a few of the variety of colors in it.
Then matching earrings, I usually do a longer and shorter version for people to choose from. And then sometimes I’ll do a bracelet or anklet.
