I have been very happy with other Artbead purchases, but much of the order I bought of this headpin were unusable. The heads of the pins are not centered which did not yield a good outcome in my designs and on many of them too much metal moves up from the head of the pin and the beads won't sit against the head, leaving too much space between head of pin and the bead.
These wrap beautifully. If you want a teeny tiny wrap, these are not the right pins for you...but if you want head pins that wrap like a dream...these are wonderful.
I was very disappointed in these as they were all very bent when they arrived. So bent, in fact, that they were impossible to straighten enough to use in some designs. I understand the very thin ones being bent but these are very heavy and should not be like this.
My beads slide down easily but these aren't 20 gauge all the way down, near the bottom my 4mm Swarovski's stop. I've had to alter my design around this but it's still a great product and one I'm willing to work with again, just with bigger crystals.
