I was one of the 7 lucky winners of Lorelei's giveaway for a Jade Scott flower headpin! All I had to do was create something with it and share it in a blog hop...not a bad deal at all! I used the awesome turquoise enameled flower headpin that I received to make a simple, but cute necklace.

I attached the flower headpin to a brass filigree flower shape, then wire wrapped an enameled filigree bead by yours truly! I attached it to copper chain and added a copper clasp. Simple, but easy to wear!
I enameled the robin's egg blue bead using Barbara Lewis' Torch Fired Enamel kit...not bad for a first time attempt! I practiced the technique with Barbara Bechtel and Shannon LeVart...if it weren't for them, I might not have ever mustered up the courage!
I have a few enameled flower headpins from Jade Scott that I have been hoarding, so I decided to use one to also make a ring. Lorelei made a ring with one, and I think they are ideal for a ring. I simply wired the flower headpin to a ring blank.
