My little sister found a shirt that she loved while shopping.  It was basically a plain black shirt with a low neckline, but its main appeal was the brooch on it that had a bow and some dangly pearls and chain.  She took one look at that thing, took a picture, sent it to me and told me it was my next project.  Lol!  She knows me far too well.  ^_^  She calls 'em shirt bling.  hehe

So here are the ones I made for her.



And here is what they look like being worn:





Each is on a regular pin back applied to the flower/bow with hot glue.  The pin back has three holes, so the beads were tied off onto the holes and the wire was attached using jump rings.

Definitely an easy way to amp up a plain shirt and make it fancier!  I think I will need to be making some for myself.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

 Oh! I love these! Especially the grey one. I have a thing for grey. This would be an awesome way to snazz up a shirt. Neat idea! I may have to try this once my life settles a bit.

I enjoy making my own beads from recycled materials. Also, designing with wire.
