During a trip to Anthropologie (one of those times when you go in and just WISH that you were there to buy), I came across some beautiful pearl hair pins. I thought they were over priced and I thought to myself "I could make those." Oh, how I often I tell that lie to myself. What I really mean is, "Oh, I'm too cheap to pay for the real thing, and I could probably make a pretty pathetic imitation of this, even though it'll take me hours and hours and in the end won't be even close to worth my time." But I gave it a shot with these pins anyway. They're simple but I've absolutely loved them. It's a great way to add just a touch of elegance to your hair—especially on a jeans and t-shirt day.
I just bought pearl beads from Robert's and superglued them onto bobby pins. For the pins with three pearls, I glued the beads together first and then onto the bobby pin. Wish I had pics of the process to show you, and actually I did, but lost them somewhere in the abyss of files and pictures that is my computer. At first I was reluctant to use beads because I wanted pearls that didn't have holes, but it turned out great. You don't even notice. Oh, and they definitely didn't take hours, so it was worth it after all.
