Not St Ickpin - the patron saint of brooches, but the lapel brooch of the same name. I discovered this was a really constructive way of using those 'components' which were originally made for designs that never materialised!
I also made a couple of larger ones to see where it went, and I'm pleased with the result - I may just make a few more and put 'em up for sale.
Not writing a huge amount this morning, I have the back from hell, and even had to cancel my physiotherapy session in the hydro pool tomorrow! Here's a piccy.................


  1. waouh nice serie ....

    have a nice day

  2. I love each one more than the last. And I am just swooning over the black one!! They're all lovely, Peter! And I so hope your back feels better've had so many pains in your body lately :( I wish you better!!!!

  3. They are all beautiful, my favourite is the green rivoli. Well done.

  4. Those are really great, and what a wonderful idea. I have lots of left over pieces that I usually give away to someone who does not do seed bead work.

    I would love to see a picture of the back, or at least a picture of the finding.

  5. What a fantastic idea! I love, love, love these! I am not a pin person but these are so unusual and really lovely!

  6. I love those, they would look gorgeous on a shawl or scarf.
