Artist Trading Pins?

Hello! Yes, you read correctly; They're pins. I made a batch of Artist Trading Pins (ATPs) for an online swap I heard about through SunSpirit Studio. I am excited because this is my first craft swap!!!

There will be four participants in the swap (including myself). I had the idea to do a crocheted pin with beads and I went through a few ideas before settling on one.

This is what I've come up with so far...

Prototype 1: Black, navy, and green yarns with green cube beads and quartz chips.

Prototype 2: Black, white, and green yarns with rose beads and quartz, cat's eye, and pink chips.

The winner! Black, strawberry, and green yarns with beads as described above.

I'll be sending my pins to Bisbee, Arizona in a few days! I'll post what I receive when I get them.
