This week I have made a few more stickpins to post in my Etsy shop. And I thought I would share them here. The stick pins pictured at left are a combination of two sets I combined together - my "Victorian Red" and "Vintage Rose" sets. I beaded these sets to compliment each other in shades of deep red and soft rosy antique pink.
My Victorian Red set pictured below has spectacular deep red and antique rose pink beads which I embellished with antique silver bead caps. I think the red and pink colors are so pretty together!

The Vintage Rose pins below are beaded with the same antique rose pink beads as are in the Victorian Red set.

And I made some more of the heart pins like in my tutorial last week:

One thing I did differently than in my tutorial last week is I used a heavier 18 gauge wire. In my tutorial I used 20 gauge but found it did not hold up as well as I liked when actually sticking it through material. The 18 gauge wire has just enough sturdiness but is not too thick to thread the beads onto.
You can find these stick pins now in my Etsy shop.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
