Posh diamante pins added to my blog candy

I haven't made any cards today - I've been playing with these lovely diamante topped pins that I bought the other day.  I couldn't get the focus right on my camera, they do look lovely in real life.  I had them from a floristry supplier - they are supposed to be used for wedding button holes.

So I found out my box of beads.  It is always my intention to have a go at jewellery making, but never seem to get round to it.  I'll have a nice collection when I retire in twenty-odd years time!  Maybe I'll have enough spare time then......

I threaded some beads and spacers onto the posh pins and secured the bottom bead with a drop of super glue .....

(Out of focus again - sorry!)

And here's my finished examples that I've had a play with ...

So, you can't have my mine - I'm sure you'd do a much better job yourself anyway.  I'm going to add 10 plain diamante pins to my followers blog candy for you to have a play.

Don't forget to enter my blog candy - just one week left!
