Safety Pin and Pearl Jewellery DIY Tutorial

I had noticed designers like Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs and Tom Binns using safety pins fashioned from precious metals in their pieces and the idea to create a simple DIY version popped up in my head. Pearls also seemed to be a recurring trend with designers so why not combine the two!

You will need:

Gold coloured safety pins

-4mm Swarovski Pearls

-Chain

-Fishhook earrings

-Jump Rings

-Chain nose pliers

How to:

1.First up the necklace. Open up a safety pin. and thread on your beads. My pins were fairly small (approx 2cm) but I could just fit three 4mm pearls on and still be able to close it up!

2.Use a jump ring to connect the looped end of the safety pin to the chain

3.For the earrings. Follow the steps as you did for the necklace, I chose only to have a single 4mm pearl on each earring.

4.Then use jump rings to link the looped ends of the safety pins to the fishhooks.

    I love this idea. I keep forgetting to put an anti racism safety pin on so I might adapt this with rainbow beads for unity. Can’t wait to see whats next.

      Thanks for sharing! I love the safety pin pieces. What size are the safety pins? (The link doesn’t work.) I need to order online, so I need the size. Thanks.

        I used 2cm safety pins. You can use any size safety pins as long as the beads will fit on. I have updated the links to the safety pins–I used the smallest ones in the pack with 4mm Swarovski pearls.

          Emma, thank you! I was wondering what size pins would fit thru the pearls because I’m going to make them with pre-teens and don’t want the girls using a reamer. YOUR RESPONSE ANSWERED MY QUESTION!
