Topics: Hat Pins

I'm looking to make some hat pins for my hat. I live in Chicago and don't enjoy chasing my hat down the street. Can you help?

You can keep the Windy City from getting the upper hand with metal-plated straight stick pins. Some are sold with a pin clutch and loop; for the straight pin with head you will need to purchase the pin clutch separately. You can personalize the straight pin with head with any bead of your choice, if the hole is large enough. Secure your additions with E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive or G-S Hypo Cement. Dangle vintage lamp pulls from the pins with loop by using a jumpring.
