DIY safety pin fashion



Safety pins are the ultimate symbol of fashion and function. Who can’t remember using a safety pin to either fix a wardrobe malfunction or make something? Safety pins are such an easy way of making your own jewelry or spicing up your wardrobe. Whatever their use, safety pins are in fashion


Safety pins can be very punk. It brings a bit of edginess to an outfit
Clockwise from top left: a Balmain jacket, necklace by Tom Binns, Vena Cava Spring 2010, photo from Dazed and Confused, Gianni Versace on the runway with Christy Turlington in another one of his sexy safety pin creations.






So here we have a bracelet made by us from safety pins. We have a few more made from other colours and different sized beads. What do you all think? x

  9. Oh my goodness, that bracelet is awesome! And so creative. But last time I wore safety pins on my clothes was when I was a dark, awkward teenager just beginning high school haha. But those pieces in your pictures are definitely edgy. I dig it haha. :)
