Floral Heart Headpins
Love My Art Jewelry is having a Jewelry Boot Camp. The current learning is about making balled headpins and other kinds as well. I made up these over the weekend. I had already been making the heart pins(bellow) but decided to try some new ideas in clay and copper since being inspired by the Boot Camp Posts.

I then tried my hand at making balled headpin flower buttons from round disks. By chance I found out that painting the liquid flux I had onto copper and heating it up turned it a wonderful red.

Then I tried my hand at a little soldering with a head pin. Came out pretty well but took me a mega amount of time. But I am so excited that they stick together. The balled headpin is a kind of rivet. Also the flowers twirl around which is fun.
