What can you make using 3-3.5 inch headpins with a designer end with loop? I find it is too thick for most of my beads. Any design ideas for them?
To use a headpin such as the one displayed, which is made with wire that is approximately 18-gauge, thread on large-hole glass or metal beads then finish with either a simple loop or a wrapped loop to secure the bead on the headpin. Attach the loop you formed to an earwire, other finding or incorporate it into your stringing design as a pendant.
To finish off the fancy headpin, connect a bead-filled headpin to the loop below the fancy end, using a simple or wrapped loop, for a dramatic design.
