I would like you to know that while I happily write the social media post for the John Bead Outlet, I am also one of their biggest customers. It is simply impossible to walk throughout the store without falling in love with some unusual or sparkly item. This new brooch is a perfect example.
A few months ago I spotted these gold badges. They may seem expensive but trust me, having purchased similar items in a high end store in New York I jumped at the opportunity to buy them in The Outlet.
I used some fabric glue to attach them to a piece of felt.
Then I used some of the wonderful vials of beads I have also purchased to bead the edges. This brooch now adorns my spring jacket.
