One thing I miss about our office in Midtown is the shops. We were right at the edge of the Garment District, and had access to a wealth of fabric, trim and beads. One of my favorites is Toho Shoji, a Japanese shop that sells primarily beads, findings, and chain.
These seed beads can be used for these hairpins. They were featured in Toho's window display-
These chains remind me of this project.
Sequins- my favorite!
What could be sweeter than a homemade charm bracelet?
