A long time ago, I made this hairpin.
I only got to wear it once before it fell out and I lost it. For my revamp this month I wanted to do something similar with some new seed beads (Toho PF2114, Cocoa Opal Silver Lined) which are just delicious.
If you notice, the original scrunched a bit in an odd way when it was in my hair.
I decided to use this as inspiration for the flower, so instead of this rounder design…
I flattened it and tacked it together for a flatter pin.
I’m so happy I have some of this left over- it’ll make a great accent color for another project someday.
