DIY Jewelry Twisted Pearl Brooch

I was inspired to make this brooch after seeing this brooch in the February issue of Teen Vogue by Slow and Steady Wins the Race. Ready to make your own? let’s get started!


Medium size pearls strung (I used 2 strings)
1 Large pearl
Hot glue


1. Cut two pieces of your felt about 2 inches across.


2. Trim them together and round the corners.

3. Using your hot glue, glue the felt pieces together.

4. Glue the end beads from each of your strings to the center of your felt.


5. Start twisting your strings of beads and gluing them down to your felt. Keep doing this until you’ve covered all of your felt.

6. Glue the ends down and secure the strings.


7. Glue your large pearl in the center of your strung beads.


8. Glue your pinback to the back of your felt.

This brooch looks great as white on white or mix it up with lots of color! The fun organic shape keeps the pearls from being from being too stuffy and adds an unexpected twist to a edgy outfit. To see more fabulous fashion DIY’s check out my blog Trinkets in Bloom to ‘Create Your Style’!

  1. This is adorable!! AND, because I’m cheap, very affordable because strung pearls and the like are almost always on sale or inexpensive after coupon at Joann’s or Michael’s. :-) I think you’re exacting right about the organic shape; it’s classy but can still be used for casual outfits!

    I’ve recently gotten into wire jewelry making; it’s a learning process and I’m pretty terrible, but it’s fun!!

    1. Thanks Lyssachelle! It’s so true, Joann’s and Michaels almost always have beads on sale or some sort of coupon!

      Keep going with the wire jewelry making! That’s awesome!

  3. Love this! I’ve always enjoyed the look of pearls, but never wore them a lot as they always read more “old and boring” on me than “classic and elegant.” And since I can’t pull off the super long chain draped down my back ala Jennifer Laurence, this DIY can finally get me into pearls. Yay!

    And I so agree with you @Trinkets-In-Bloom this brooch would look so fabulous matched with a more edgy, rock and roll type of outfit (on maybe a jean jacket or moto jacket) – I love outfits that juxtapose styles like that!

  4. I love the look of pearls as well. I have so many strands that I am going to follow your helpful instructions and create a broach for myself. THANK YOU!

  5. This brooch is so cute, what a great idea! I think it’s adorable and looks easy to make! I love pearls.. A classic item that never dies! I think I may pull out mine and wear to something special!
