Balled head pin - boot camp!

Welcome to my blog..... It has been a VERY long time since I have put anything on this. Maybe our boot camp will get me motivated again!

To learn more about our LMAJ Boot Camp you can click HERE.

To see some fantastic Flickr submissions using shared techniques, click HERE.


For my first one, I just kept the use of the head pins simple. I created the headpins as in Staci's tutorial, hammered and added patina.




And, if you are a follower of our blog, you might remember Lucy..... Well, after a few attempts, she has located her twin..... fraternal twins, of course....


Thanks for stopping by. Click HERE to either link up your own balled head pins design or to see what others have come up with :o)

You put such detail into these! Love that top necklace;) And the earrings really show off how to use the rosey red heapins to add color to your piece!

Your necklace is beautiful but it's your whimsical "Lucy" earrings that have captured my heart. Those are just precious!

Love the necklace and those crawl glazed beads. Just meant to be paired with copper.

Gorgeous designs - the Lucy earrings are such a fun idea. I love that rosy red colour - I'm going to have to try that.

of course I love the necklace! I'm acutally digging the hoops you hammered more than your headpins ;)

Have to agree with Barbara on the hoops...I sat here staring at those wondering what they started out as because they're so cool looking. Who knew you could take something, beat it up and make it look ten times better?
Your Lucy twins are SO CUTE!

The crazed beads are such a perfect fit with your copper head pins. Looks like a treasured archaeological find. And who wouldn't love Lucy and her twin!
