The Progress of a Beaded Pin

This is a pin I designed and beaded. It measures 5 by 3 1/2 inches (13.5 by 9.5 cm). I forged the pin back from a piece of 14k gold-fill wire. The medallion in the center is a German glass hatpin top made about 1900 to 1910. The large green pebble shaped beads are malachite. All the seed beads are glass. It's beaded on crinoline and the backing is Ultrasuede.

Tres chic :-) Ever think of doing something in whites? The way you create these pretty things, I can envision one on the bodice of a wedding dress.
