I’ve been working on a new project for several months: glass drawing pins (aka push pins, or thumbtacks). It’s taken a while to develop the designs, but now I’m finally ready to show them. Here is a set of blue pins:
I have been learning to adapt my beadmaking techniques to make these little guys. I melt the glass directly on to the drawing pin shaft, so there is no glue involved. They are very sturdy. This photo shows the back of the same pins.
They are available as a set of nine pins, packaged in a little box. They make great gifts! These ones are red, though the photo is a bit dark.
And here’s a set of smileys.
