Ok, I am a horrible photographer! I couldn't catch the sparkle and I kept getting this weird shadow. This is a huge safety pin basket that I bought from the boyfriend of the lady who makes them. I paid $5.00 for it! I hope he didn't get in trouble when she found out. Who would do all this work for that? I have long admired these and want to learn to make them. This one really sparkles, which makes me love it more. So some snowy, rainy day, I'll sit down with pins and beads (pink!) and fiqure this out. But I won't be selling it for $5.00 (although my twenty something daughter might..... she thinks it's the tackiest thing ever!) If you know how this is done or have a tip , please let me hear it.
