Another Shawl Pin

These shawl pins are addictive to make.  I also tried a new technique on this one, Wire Weaving.

This shawl pin is a custom make for a friend who just finished a big shawl.  I have a sample of the yarn and this will match perfectly!!

First I did a little doodling, on actual could have used my iPad, or computer to doodle.  But I have yet to find a stylus that I like for this purpose.

Here is the start of the piece.  It was fun to do the weaving, I wove 3 wires together...

I framed the main bead, since it is a leaf, and it is semi flat, I thought I would try a framing technique...

Here is the final piece...
