|One of my first original designs from May, 2011 using a metal bail|
With my new tutorial, Constructing Accent Pieces for Your Scarves, Sweaters & Shawls, I teach the basic construction of making shawl pins and scarf jewelry. The idea is that once you know how to make the basic forms, you can apply almost any technique to give your pieces your own personal style.
An example of this is how I have incorporated techniques from my other tutorials to show how they can be applied to the various forms in this lesson. For instance, the flowers from my "Sculpted Flowers" tutorial can be used in several projects in this lesson to make:
A shawl pin:
A shawl / hair stick:
This is just one technique of many that can be used. Included in my lesson are several pages of photos showing other examples for more ideas and inspiration.
