Outside of the world of metalsmithing I have designed a few pins. Some for themed swaps, others just for fun.
Here are some pins I have created.

Base of wings are mat board covered with metallic ribbon.
Body created with beads and fishing line. Body tied to wings which were then covered in several layers of ultra-thick embossing enamel. Interference powders were rubbed over wings and pin-backs glued on.
Created on 1"x1/4" wood circles using ribbons and fabric trims.
