Make a hair accessory…

Part of the credit for the inspiration that led to this barrette goes to Domestic Goddess Enterprises, who is also participating in the 30 Day Bead Challenge, is a fellow Doctor Who fan.  She mentioned that she had been watching Season 3, which led me to watch Matt Smith’s first episode again this afternoon.

“Bow ties are cool!”

The black beads are hematite finish, which gave me a hard time trying to photograph without a horrible glare.  When naturally lit, it looks like a starry sky.  Of all the pieces I’ve made during the month, this is my favorite (and the first barrette I’ve ever made).  I’m going to have to make a matching bracelet or choker!
