I Love My Job

Look what I made at work today:

It's a shawl pin made from copper wire, coiled and hammered and wire-wrapped with beads. Here's what it looks like in use:

Soon I'll be teaching a class on it.

Working in a bead store is the best job ever. (After crochet design, that is.)



Credit for this idea goes to Ingrid the Crafty, who graciously allowed me to photograph her beautiful coiled pins at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival last September, and encouraged me to try making some of my own. (Click here to find links to more of her amazing work.)
