Don't get me wrong, I love Artbeads. Great products and super helpful staff. It's just, this eyepin is made of a very brittle base metal alloy. It's got very poor strength and malleability. Don't even think about making a wrapped loop with it.
the 23 gauge is a bit light but it wraps with ease and looks professional.
As other reviewers stated, this eye pin is very delicate and breaks easily. I ordered a few extra and i'm glad I did. You really have to hold your breathe when bending or twisting the pin. Overall it's what you get for that price.
After reading previous reviews on this product, I agree with the majority of the other reviewers about the quality. The first eye pin I used to wrap a bead with broke. I had to go through a couple before the 'right one' made it. Great price but a little frustrating.
