First, be sure to check out her shop, Fleur De Lacey - she has those cute hairpins as I mentioned, but there's tons more jewelry you'll love, like these:
Now, if you're wanting to make your own, here's a how to make mini polymer clay flowers for hairpins (and more!) - -
1. Select color of clay and break of a small piece (about the size of a teaspoon). Knead until it is soft an pliable. Roll into a long strip (like a worm).
Note: There are lots of ways to spice this up: Mix two clays and swirl for a multi color flower, add glitter, using a little polymer clay glue, press a bead or gemstone in the center.
