Fancy Head Pin Earrings

You don't always have to use the standard variety of head pin — a stick with a flat head on one end. The availability and variety of fancy shmancy head pins these days is outstanding. Using them can add some major design elements to your jewelry. These Swarovski faux pink pearl beads (see Figure 8-3) are teamed up with head pins that have a flower element on the end. To keep with the nature theme, we use sterling leverback ear hooks with a leaf design.

Don't shy away from faux pearls, especially if they're made by Swarovski. Although natural pearls are great, manufactured ones have perfectly drilled holes, uniform shapes, and come in great colors as well.
