I can't remember if I ever posted some of these before, but these are my latest sets of decorative sewing pins. I've been making them for gifts for crafty types. Smiley Two of the sets are made with glass beads; one is made with wooden beads. They're on extra-long quilting pins so they're usable, and I just love how they look in a pin cushion! Thanks for looking!

They're attached securely with industrial-strength glue. Smiley

These are just awesome!!!  Thanks for letting us know how you attach them.  Do you use like e6000 or epoxy?  Have a great day!

I've used e6000 and several other similar glues. They all seem to work about the same, just make sure it's made for metals/jewelry and you should be fine.
