One of my favorite movies from the 1980s is Steel Magnolias. And one of my favorite lines from that movie is when Annelle says, "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize." As jewelry makers, you probably feel the same way!

Beaducation has added a new line of accessories that branches beyond jewelry, including Hair Pins, a Hair Comb, and a Pendant Pin Back.

We posted these bobby pins on our Facebook page and got a lot of great feedback. People were most excited that you don't have to solder to personalize them. They are silver plated, so cold connections are recommended -- we adorned these by riveting and using 5-Minute Epoxy. The pins are 2.25" long and the round circle at the end has 0.29" of area to work with.

The Hair Comb is something we featured as one of our Wedding Designs. The wire wrapping and beads make this design perfect for a special occasion. You could also rivet blanks to the bar on the comb to create a bit of flare without being over the top.

The Pendant Pin Back is something brand new to Beaducation. Our pin includes a bail at the top, meaning can be worn as a pendant when you don't want it pinned to your lapel or tote. We recommend using the 5-Minute Epoxy to affix this to the blank of your choice.

Which will you try first?
