3 wire headpins

So I managed to grab me a pair of 3 wire Pati Walton headpins during her recent FB headpin sale. I was fascinated and daunted by the 3 wires.  I had absolutely no idea how I would 'tackle' them.  I've only seen them being used by Lynn Ferro and Cheryl Zink.  I love these ladies' designs.  But I needed to make sure mine looked nothing like theirs - a difficult task as I kept thinking about how they'd used these headpins.

So these are the headpins in question

and this is my interpretation.

I'm really happy with the way they've turned out.  Here are a few more pictures

But once you start making earrings there's no stopping - I'm sure a lot of you will relate to this ;) So I went ahead and made some more :D

Headpins by Pati Walton
Birds by Lorna Johnston

Flowers by Elaine Thornton
Beaded beads by Ellie Bead

And lastly Ceramic decal charms by Petra Carpreau

That's it for today.  I'll be listing these earrings either in my Etsy shop or in my FB show which is currently running in the Handmade Jewellery Showcase group

Thank you <3<3<3

  7. Best Flowers NYC shop in the city! Their 'ready to go' floral arrangements are the best deal in town - and last well over a week. Plus, they always seem open - so great to pick them up on way home from dinner.
