Lapel Pins, Plum Blossom & Iris Hair Pins

I’ve been working on some larger projects the last few months - for a wearable art gala which I ended up having to cancel on because of time constraints. I’ve since switched gears to smaller pieces. I have a convention this weekend, so I’ve been making lots of lapel pins, and sets of hair pins. I’ve still got more I’m finishing, but I thought I’d share my progress so far.

Here’s my pile of lapel pins. I made over a hundred for this show!

I also made a short video of the process for making the plum blossom hairpins. :slight_smile: If anyone’s interested, there’s a link to it here:


Nice to see you again! Such beautiful flowers; good luck with the convention.

Wow! So pretty! I’m going to have to check out that video!

These are so very pretty. The hair pins especially. Thank you for sharing the link. I might have to try that when I have more time (AKA - this winter!).

What adhesive is that, the clear one that you use for the ribbon? It’s so nice and grippy!

It’s rice glue, or nori paste.

They are all lovely, but I especially adore the purple Iris!

Wow! Gorgeous! I think those that will wear them will be quite lucky. Have fun at the convention!

I like your deep maroon blossoms and the plum hair pins. Big job!

I am a sucker for a cute hair accessory! These are perfect.

I may have to try out your tutorial, thanks for sharing!

That display looks phenomenal!

Oh these are just adorable :heart_eyes:
