Safety Pin Bracelets



A couple of months ago I went to the Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival which is the number one Arts Festival in Texas and the third largest in the country. This is my second year going since I moved to the area and my family and I now look forward to it. There are over 200 artists, live performances, fun activities for the kids.....and the food....oh my, there are so many delicious things to eat. I starve myself the entire day before I go! Anyhow, about the bracelets...there are many cute shops along the bricked roads of downtown Ft. Worth and I found this art store with all kinds of treasure (wish I remembered the name). I bought a cool Frida bag and a really beautiful safety pin bracelet. Every time I wear it I get compliments and people ask if I made it. So, since school is out I ventured down to Hobby Lobby and bought lots of beads and safety pins. These are the two I made so far! I paid about $12 for mine and I saw some on ebay for $20. It did take me quite a bit of time especially on the first one I made (top) because I used really small beads that were in a mixed pack. The second one has smaller pins, larger beads and a spacer bead so it took about half the time. Plus, I finally got my rhythm down. I am taking some graphic design classes that are taking up most of my spare time but I really love the bracelets and hope to make more!

  1. I made some of these w/kids in a summer art program a few years back. They looked cute but they took a LOT of patience. Yours look great!
