Felted Bird's Nest Hairpins for Valentine's Day

I'm working like mad to replenish stock after the holidays. First up are some new Bird's Nest Hairpins! I found the most beautiful silvery pink freshwater pearls for this new batch. I like how they complement the silver of the hairpin. In honor of Valentine's Day (which is fast approaching!) I've named them Passion Pink and Romance Red.Passion Pink Felted Bird's Nest Hairpin with Freshwater Pearl EggsRomance Red Felted Bird's Nest Hairpin with Freshwater Pearl EggsI also strayed from my usual farm where I buy my wool and picked up this very silky grey wool the other day. It's very wispy and soft. It didn't look quite right with the freshwater pearls, but looked just awesome with turquoise! So, the grey ones will sport three little gemstone turquoise "eggs". They are a little bit more because of the gemstones, but totally worth it!The Nature of Nests Felted Bird's Nest Hairpin with Turquoise Gemstone EggsI have more scary medical appointments scheduled for the next two weeks and am trying to keep too busy in the studio to think about them. I am taking a break to watch "The Duchess" tonight on Netflix. It looks really good and the costumes to die for! I haven't had time to visit any of my sweet bloggy friends yet this year, but my thoughts are with you all!

I know you don't want to be thinking about them, but I hope everything is OK with your appointments.

I still need to watch The Duchess!!
