Miss E has been in a crafty mood lately. A friend of hers was sporting a safety pin bracelet at school, so of course, just like any 4th grader, she wanted one too. So off we went to the fabric store to purchase a large bag of safety pins and some stretchy fishing-line type of stuff. Fortunately Miss E has a rather large bead collection (thank you yard sales!!!) so we did not need to purchase any additional findings in the bead department.
Each safety pin was beaded individually... kind of like the friendship pins of the 80's that we all wore on our shoes so it looked like beaded tassels flopping along as we walked. But this version has the pins strung on the stretchy line with a spacer bead between each beaded safety pin.
The results are rather spectacular and it took about an hour to put the whole thing together.
