Custom JewelryJewelry pins, or brooches, are one of the simplest forms of handmade jewelry to design and make. The most challenging aspect of the design is to decide which elements to use to create the pin. From crystal cabochons to plastic buttons, the component choices for jewelry pin designs vary widely. Whether you purchase pin charms that you can fill in with pressed flowers and miniature photos or create your own pin style from felt, custom pin designs are limited only by your imagination. Things You'll Need

  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Flat-back cabochons
  • Flat-back rhinestones
  • Jeweler's glue
  • Seed beads
  • Pin back

Instructions

  • 1. Cut out a section of felt to match the overall dimensions and shape of your Custom Jewelry pin. The felt is the backing for the pin design.

  • 2. Arrange the largest flat-back cabochons on top of one side of the felt cutout. Flat-back cabochons are glass or gemstones that may be dome-shaped on the top center, faceted and cut to specific sizes. Craft stores, specialty bead stores and online jewelry suppliers offer a wide variety of flat-back cabochons available for sale. Vintage and estate jewelry is another source for cabochons you can use to make your custom pins. Tweezers make handling and placing the stones easier.

  • 3. Fill in around the largest cabochons with flat back rhinestones. Rhinestones are made from glass, crystal or acrylic and are available in a wider variety of shapes and sizes than cabochons. The different shapes of the rhinestones and the cabochons may leave spaces between each element. Rearrange the design of the elements until you are pleased with the look.

  • 4. Glue the cabochons and the rhinestones in place on the felt with jeweler's glue according to your pin design. Fill in the spaces between the rhinestones and cabochons with glass seed beads. Apply the jeweler's glue to the spaces and then use tweezers to drop and press the seed beads in place. Allow the glue to dry.

  • 5. Flip the Custom Jewelry pin over so that the jewels are face down. Use jeweler's glue to attach the pin back to the backside of the felt. Let the glue dry before wearing the pin.

Tips & Warnings

  • Cover the felt with ribbons, fabric, buttons, bottle caps and other embellishments to create a custom designed pin. You can stitch beads, ribbon and fabric embellishments to the felt using a beading needle and thread, or rely on clear-drying jeweler's or craft glue to hold the elements in place.
