New year, new designs!!!

I've been busy, finding a few hours here and there to make these slick fibulas.

They're kind of fancy large safety pins, meant to be worn with a loosely woven or knit scarf or cowl.  

They're fun to make and since I have an endless supply of cool artists' beads, they're a perfect vehicle for using up, however slightly, my inventory.

I have variously used beads of Raku pottery, vintage, kiln-fired lamp work, crystal and some fab new torched copper beads made by cottage industry in Afghanistan.  

86
I think they are literally made in people's cottages where they are then dipped in a gold liquid which gives them the most incredible colorations.  The fibs range from $75 to $125 depending on the combinations of beads used.

Have a fun and safe New Year's!
