Sterling silver. Measures 1" in length. Made of 24 gauge wire.
Head pins are wires that feature a flattened end designed to hold a bead in place at the end of the wire. The excess wire can then be made into a simple loop or wire wrapped loop and added as embellishment to earrings, the end of a necklace, or even act as a centerpiece. The end of this head pin features a flattened end that measures 1.5mm across.
The 24 gauge wire accomodates most pearls and stone beads as well as glass and crystal. The wire is 3/4 hard and will hold a small simple loop with relative security.
