materials (they are already in your stash) :
- 2 safety pins (same size )
- extension chain (as required – I used 5 loops on each side)
- 3 pairs of beads (I used fuzz beads in green and blue)
- 6 headpins (in the same metal as the safety pin)
- 2 earring hooks
- Pliers (chain/nose or round)
- Cutters
Procedure :

- Cut the heads off from the pins. Trim the edges to make sure they are equal.
- Open the pin out to 2′O clock
- Using your pliers now make a small loop on either hand facing outside
(my loops are not great this time, but you can make them better)
- Repeat the steps for the other pin

- Add Fuzz beads (or nay other bead/pearl of your choice) to the head pins
- Loop and cut the wire close to the beads (you can wrap around if you want. I kept it simple as it is a beginner project)

- I Added the beads to the base before closing the loops to avoid doing it twice
- So here you go…its done in less than 5 minutes

Wear them and enjoy them. You can make then with gold safety pins and pearls and make them classy or steel pins and fuzz balls like these for a grassy summery effect. Try them in girly florals colours too.
Have fun
Cheers
