  • 1 Hairclip w/ hole for beading
  • 27 - 4mm glass beads

I have used an invisible thread insted of wire to refresh my tired hear clip.Now it look like new and everybody ask what shop it is from.

I like this idea. It's simple and easy to modify for someone of any age. I think I like the idea of putting the beaded strands on fishing line so it will be flexible as it dangles down the hair. Another project that I'm eager to start. I might even take some of my older necklaces apart and use those beads. Or you can buy necklaces with lovely beads at yard sales for pennies. Then take them apart and start creating. Another good idea.

I love these hair clips but can't seem to find the correct wire. Either it's too stiff or to flimsy. I have used 3 different types and nothing is working well. The end result is cute but soooo frustrating to finish.

I like it, I'm going to make some for my grandduather
