Ive already shown the beret I made as part of the challenge on Craft Pimp, well I made myself a fibula pin to add a bit of unique style. I used one of my handmade raku fired beads which I’d been saving. It’s quite lusterous but that doesn’t show in the photo. I teamed it up with some of my handmade glass beads. The pin is made from copper wire.
I love fibulae, they can transform the most simple garment into something very stylish indeed. Imagine looking at the photo above without the hat pin, it just wouldn’t look the same. These brooches are designed to be pinned into an open weave knitted, chrochet or woven fabric, so they are perfect for hats, scarves, sweaters, cardigans and shawls. They are decorative, they are not designed to be used as a fastener. This fibula pin certainly adds an interesting detail to my new beret don’t you think?
I do like making fibulae, particlaly choosing the beads to put togther making each pin very individulal. I have fibula pins in my shop and I will be making more next week. Pictures to follow
