Need a headpin? Make a headpin!

by justatish on Oct.08, 2009, under Jewelry Making

Never be without a head pin again! If you have wire, you can create a head pin to use in any of your designs.

What you will need:
1 pair of side nippers
1 pair chain nosed pliers
Daisy spacer (optional)

Cut a piece of wire 1 3/4″ in length. Pictured here is 22 ga sterling wire.


Grasp the very end of the wire with the chain nosed pliers, turn the pliers in a counter clockwise direction 180 degrees.


You have a ‘hook’


Pinch the hook together with your chain nosed pliers


There is your head pin!


You can use a daisy spacer bead as a decoration or as a stopper if the beads you are using have a larger hole.




Now you are ready to create earrings, pendants or add charms to any of your designs!
