The completed beaded flower brooch.Don't throw away your old jeans. Fold a few denim circles, add beads and you will have this original brooch. I like very much the contrast between the raw edge of the denim and the pearlescent color of the beads.


Total Time: 30 Minutes


  • piece of denim from old jeans
  • 6 beads with diameter 0.8 cm (I used white pearlescent beads)
  • strong thread (closest color to the denim)
  • strong needle for hand sewing
  • brooch pin
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • compass or a round object with a diameter of 2 inches
