Making martirika (baptism witness pins) was much more time-consuming than I had imagined. Before you rush off to your local craft store, you need to committ several hours to making these, especially if the baptism is over 50 people. I wanted to create a unique look that had a pop of color and feminine touch.
- Size 2 gold safety pins
- Beige ribbon
- Gold and colored beads
- Gold crosses. (I used “Jewelry Essential Findings” from Michael’s and spray painted them gold. They come in packs of 8 or 9.)
- Gold jump rings
