~Crystal and Pearl Hair Pins~

I almost forgot that I made hairpins before I started making jewelry last year.  I love hairpins and I have a ton!  I didn't know people made hairpins with Swarovski crystals till my friend showed me the ones she got for her wedding day.

What a shock!  They charged so much for 3 little crystals on hairpins at the bridal salon!  So, I was determined to make a bunch for the bridemaids (including me) for the wedding.  Now that I have tried it, I can kind of understand why they costed so much.  But, I still think they were way overpriced.

Her theme was green and brown, so I made these for myself.  I only used a few though...now they are sitting in a pretty box.

I experimented with this.  Also, sitting in a box now.  These flowers are cute :)

Some white ones too 'cause our dresses were brown and white...

Here's my lovely model:

I'll probably be making sets for my etsy shop sometime this month.  Simple ones or fancy ones?  I want to explore hair vines too.  Wedding season is coming up!  Very excited!

I love those hairpins! I especially like the ones from the top picture--but I am partial to brown.

Very, very pretty....
I actually saw a hair vine earlier last week, and I've been researching it like CRAZY! I intend to make a few coming up shortly here...
If I can find the time!

I haven't tried to make hairpins... But yours are absolutely beautiful! I love the colors you used!
