Beaded Brooches

Last week I mentioned I have been having fun learning to assemble retro sty brooches.
Here are a few of my first projects.
My beading stash has grown a fair bit over the last five years.
I am using this exercise as an opportunity to use up unusual beads I picked up in my travels.

The best part about these brooches is that I can also use up leftover beads from current works.
Loving this style of hand sewing and jewelry assembly.

I love this idea. Are you backing them onto felt?

Would love instructions : )
