Oh, my! What beautiful headpins!
As I mentioned last month, I was one of the lucky recipients of a pair of beautiful lampwork glass ball headpins made by Anne of Gardanne Beads from the lovely Lorelei Eurto as part of this blog hop challenge.
I encountered a little trouble at the start. I was a bit too agressive while wrapping one of the wires and the ball end popped off. You can read about that adventure here.
I had originally thought that I'd add a leaf dangle, but after trying a few different ideas, decided that I really wanted to showcase the beautiful glass.
So, I made a couple of 14 gauge copper jump rings and balled copper headpins for earwires, popped the whole lot in the tumbler to shine the copper up a bit and viola!
