Hello all! I have been working on an angel package for the Geek Chic swap and I wanted to show this beaded pin that I made Smiley Everyone needs a gaudy delicious communicator pin right?

I forgot to measure it but it's probably about two inches tall and and one inch wide, somewhere close to actual size was my goal.

It's a bit lighter in person but I wanted you to be able to see the beads. It's made on a 3mm felt base that I cut myself. There is no backing since the felt is thick.
Couple of detail pics...



I made the bead pattern up as I went along. I have some sterling beads, glass seed beads, vintage glass pearls and I thought that purple bead looked fun in there Smiley

I'd love to hear what you all think Smiley

Boldly going where others have probably been.
