I found these really gaudy earring posts, but figured they would work great for a pin.




I used hot pink, size 11 seed beads and a swavorski crystal for the center.  It was a lot of fun to make.  I can't wait to wear it, tomorrow!

I love that! What did you use for stringing the beads and how did you secure it in the middle?

I used pink colored silamide thread and just sewed on the bead.  My flower is a little floppy when I put it on.  I'm thinking of either using powerpro or soft flex to string it on, next time.  I also am going to use size 8 beads and string side to side (rose pattern) instead of up and down.

Any other suggestions to make it less floppy??

I made a second flower this weekend and it turned out much better!!!  This time I used powerpro to string on the beads and its not floppy at all (yay!!)  The hubby has been hoarding the webcam, so I'll post pics when I can.
