This is something I’ve been wanting to do for quiet a while, I’ve just had a hard time finding the proper colors.  I suppose it isn’t all that geeky either, but oh well!  I finally found the right colors (orange and maroon, DUH!) at a local place called Beadsburg.  It’s your typical beading place, but I didn’t even know it existed until recently.  Anyways, I knew that since it was near my school, they HAD to have our school colors and sure enough they did.  So here are some of the creations I’ve made with these awesome colors.

I got two sizes, an 11/0 and an 8/0, in both orange and maroon.  I figured I would find something to do with both sizes, and sure enough I have! The first thing I made was some twisted orange and maroon bobby pins.  They’re quick and easy to make and something I’d actually use.  I also gave a pair to my cousin since she wants to go to Tech (she’s only like 7 too!).

I also have some large bobby pins, they’re much bigger than these, that I plan on using some of the bigger beads to do twisted or single color pins, I just haven’t had the time to do it yet.
