How to Make Unique Flower Hair Clips with Polymer Clay Beads Pendants
Summary: If you like distinctive flower hair clips, you must like this one. This is a flower hair clip made of fabric and lace with polymer clay beads pendants hung on there.
Most of flowers on hair clips I made are regular flowers. A regular flower means that the shape and size of each petal is almost the same. The fabric and lace flower on this hair clip is one of the irregular flowers. The fabric flower is petal-like and the lace flower is half a flower. The texture of fabric and lace makes this hair clip understated and the polymer clay beads pendants give it personality.
