I have hesitated to treat myself to these wonderful beadcaps for a long time, since they are a bit more pricey than flat beadcaps. However, given the sale offered by Artbeads.com I finally caved and purchased 100! They are terrific: uniform, stronger than I expected, and SO very useful for making charms and bead-dangles. I am so happy to have these, which provide a classier and more professional look to my charms/dangles versus holding beads onto the string with tiny loops. Thank you ArtBeads!!!
If you're using just one bead or maybe a couple of small ones these are perfect headpins. Really cuts down on waste. I also like the balled end - adds a little extra interest. I'm a definate fan of these.
These are the best ball end head pins I have ever used. Artbeads sells a very high quality, uniform in appearance, impressive product.
The one inch are the best! I only wish that I could purchase 500 or 1000 at an even lower price because I use so many of them.
If you have a bead that is too large, consider putting a small bead at the end and then using 26 gauge round half hard wire for the larger bead and link to the smaller bead, This method also gives your piece more movement.
