Topics: Beads, Large-Hole

Q.
I have some cute porcelain animal-shaped beads. They are hollow and the holes are somewhat large. How can I keep these from turning around on the head pins for earrings? Could I fill them with soft, dry-able clay or glue? I want their little faces to point the right way! Thanks so much.

A great way to secure your large-hole beads is to use Vitrium® Clay. Fill the holes with this air-dry resin clay and poke your headpins through the clay before it dries. Let fully cure, make simple loops out of your headpin and you're ready to go!
