Easy to use 26 gauge Head PinsApril 13, 2012
I have bought Head Pins from all over and this is the Cat's Meow!
First, it is Silver Filled giving quality while not hurting the pocket book as SS does. Next the 26 Gauge give an easy to work with "bending without breakage." Working without Breaking is the most important featured to appreciate to me so you do not waste time remaking and you do not worry about breakage in the field. Many competitors Head Pins break while being worked.
The 26 Gauge is small at .016" but for me making many earrings and small accessories to bracelets it is excellent. The head is .050" diameter so you need to watch the hole size in the items being used.
I mentioned silver filled above so if you are not up to date silver filled is a key to buying silver findings today. Artbead is one of the few offering silver filled. Also silver filled is better than silver plated for long term quality in my opinion. Silver filled offers the middle road between silver plated and SS. Look for 925/10 silver filled.
