Fun With Fibulas!

I’ve been saying for a while I wanted to make some fibulas for some of my Winged Things creations so that they could function either as a pendant/necklace or a kinetic brooch of sorts. Today I decided to play around a bit with fibulas and made two quick and easy pins in no time at all. I decided to make a fibula to match my Madame Flutterbye pendant (Winged Thing #4) first.

This one was actually the first fibula I made but it didn’t fit the pendant very well so I just added a few swaros and a bone cat for the heck of it.

You will be seeing more fibulas from me in the months ahead, no doubt a tutorial for them as well. 🙂

  1. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Love what you have done with fibulas. Not being a pin person, I have not really tried them yet they seem versatile and have a great look. Maybe with a Delia tutorial, I will give them a try!

    • Thanks Christine 🙂 I’ve never been a pin person either but I got so many requests this fall from people looking for pins or brooches that I just knew I had to put them on my list. This is at least a start! 🙂 Many more experiments will be done – until I’m comfortable with them, I am sure.

  2. Try “Happy Mango” they have new stuff in. Some are rediculously expensive,some “I really can’t afford that now, and some “I really shouldn’t but I have to have that. I find a lot of their stuff really unique. Enjoyed yesterday as always. Really looking forward to 22nd.
