1.5-inch Silver-Plated 23 Gauge Head Pin
Head pins and eye pins are ideal beading components for hanging beads, pendants and other various uses. Simply create a Simple Loop on the straight end of the pin to attach it almost anywhere! Silver-plated beading components are an economical alternative to sterling silver. These plated components are all top quality and work just as well as the non-plated items do, but for a fraction of the price. Beat the heat of rising sterling silver products and buy plated items. Save the sterling for your big designs and use silver-plated components for your day to day designs.

Great headpin!August 18, 2013
I'm so happy I got these! I was using some headpins I picked up from a local craft store and they were so hard to work with! I got these in the very next day and they were a breeze by comparison! They were much easier to bend, and I haven't had one snap on me yet!

Wrong items mailed to meMay 21, 2013
I would give more high rating, I thought I ordered head pins according to the titles, end up I got the eye pins, so it is useless now, I have to order real head pins from somewhere else, for sure, my project delayed.

This is a nice quality finding. The head pin is quite sturdy and the wire is a good gauge. My only concern was that the head was a little too small for some beads, and I don't like using a smaller bead to avoid slipping (it disrupts the whole design sometimes). Other than that, it's a good finding. Remember, when purchasing, to select the length that you need based on the size of the bead(s) that you wish to put on the pin PLUS the bit of length it will take to make a loop.

Nice but different to work withFebruary 3, 2012
I would definitely recommend this product as it is a good price for the product. I found that because I'm used to working with Sterling Silver findings, the "hardness" of these headpins take some getting used to. They are stiffer than what I expected which causes wrapping to be different. It's hard to explain but in my case, I found I have to be very careful of where the wire is going during wrapping - otherwise, it will easily start wrapping over the previous wrap.

Pretty great for charmsJuly 30, 2011
These are perfect for the kind of charms I make, but there were wayyyyy too many that broke after I bent them. :( But the ones that didn't break are great :)

hmmmmmJanuary 18, 2011
Good for limited manipulation because of easy breakage. I use for inexpensive pieces.

great price but breaks easilyAugust 26, 2010
These head pins are a great price, color and size, but at least 1 in ten snapped as I bent them slightly. I don't know what the base metal is under the silver plate, but they were not very bendable. I won't buy them again.

You Get What You Pay ForSeptember 9, 2009
These head pins have nice-sized heads and are a good gauge for thinner holes. They're also a beautiful bright silver color.

However, they are VERY brittle, not good for wire wrapping at all. Three of the six I used broke in my hands - and one of those was just a simple loop I slightly opened to attach to an earring.

They look great and are reasonably priced, but they're not worth the frustration.
