I made them using Metallic Black glass, this is a challenging glass to use and can produce a fantastic metallic iridescent sheen to it but very hard to control so each headpin has a slightly different finish to it.
I then went on to make this necklace.
I have to admit I don't like the necklace very much, maybe because it is definitely something I wouldn't wear. I would have like to have re-made it but unfortunately I ran out of time to have another go. What do you think, do you like it?
