Once again I have been amazed by the original use of pearls on the Chanel catwalk. I saw this image a while ago, it was from the S/S 13 collection, but like the feathers I posted about last time it took a while to find the right size pearl. I managed to find some at a vintage fair, so I have now been able to make this pearl hairpin in the style of Chanel It was very simple and didn't take more than five minutes, I just wired an over sized pearl onto a kirby grip. On the Chanel catwalk the hairpin was added to the top of a loose chignon, now that I have made the hairpin I need to perfect my chignon making!
