Consider making your own headpins out of heavier gauge wire. A how-to video on three options can be found in the resource section below if you are unfamiliar with the process. Bead holders are another option--one end comes off the bead holder, the pendant goes on the end goes back on to secure the pendant in place. There is a loop on the top that can then be worked into the design.
