This time around we were working with some lovely balled end Glass headpins from Gardanne Beads. These were particularly challenging because unlike regular headpins, the ends of the wire is balled.
I admit I took some extra time to think about these. I kept picking them up, rolling them around in my hands, and kept trying to come up with some funky and unique way to incorporate these into a finished piece. For awhile, I got nothin. The balled end prevents you for adding beads onto the headpin unless the bead holes were big enough. I had a few extras that Anne sent me to play with so I ended up using them all in one final necklace design.
I added another tin disc at the back and the small brass hook clasp slips around the tin "button" closure.
