Beaded Branches Pin/Barrette Tutorial


Make a pin or hair barrette encrusted with delicate beaded flowers, berries, and leaf branches. Just by changing the beads or the number of branches you can achieve different looks with the same technique. This is a great use for your leftover “bead soup” and it makes a great lapel pin or jacket adornment. You could also make one of these as a barrette or even attach a veil for a bridal headpiece.
