Safety Pin Bracelet

Safety Pin Bracelet

Safety Pin Bracelet by WhoozQueen

Well, I've had a bit of a break but Xmas is coming, the geese are getting fat and the presents ....so hard to find, aren't they?  I hope that Oohsome can provide some inspiration for you all.

The bracelet pictured above is something that I whipped up last week.  About 65 safety pins, with 4mm beads in olive, deep purple, brass, soft violet and sea green.  I had so much fun making this one that I've decided to do a few more in other colour combinations.  One tip that I can give you, instead of superglueing the pins closed, I pinched them shut after doing the threading.  They're secure, and there's no fiddling around with fast setting glue.
