Today, I have a necklace design to share with you that has a fun little technique I use regularly in my jewelry design. I tend to collect pins but I don't wear them. I scored this great scissor pin at an antique mall and it was screaming to be made into a necklace.
My latest batch of Prima Beads contained some great pink drops, connectors and beads. I thought these would look awesome with my big gold scissors.
As mentioned above I have a fun little way to hang a bead from the pin back. You know those little spacer beads that come on a strand of focal big beads? Well, I used 3 of the little beads to hold the chain in the center of the pin back to allow the center bead to dangle from the pivot point of the scissors.
I can't wait to wear my new gold scissor and Prima Beads necklace.
