This is a fairly simple Instructable on making a cute hair pin. You can use the beading technique here to make other cute accessories. The beads used don't need to be the same as the ones I used - as long as they have big enough openings for your wire. The list of materials is available in the next step. Feel free to ask any questions.
Step 1: Materials for Beaded Hair Pin
- Beading Wire .45mm
- Jewelry pliers
- Pearl Bead
- Small Beads for around the Pearl (the size is up to you - as long as the opening is big enough to allow the beading wire in and out a couple times)
- The turquoise beads I used were glass aqua beads 3x6mm in size - anything will work fine
- Some other larger beads that will go next to the aqua beads
- Hair Pin
- Some other flexible wire that you can use to attach the finished piece to the hair pin
Step 2: Wire and Pearl
First cut out a piece of the beading wire about two feet long and string it through the middle of the pearl. Then take one end of the wire that's sticking out through the side of the pearl and bring it around the bottom to the other side and pull it through the hole. Do the same with the other side going over the top and through the opposite side. See images.
