14kt gold-filled. Measures 1.5" 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 loop and added as embellishment to earrings, the end of a necklace, or even act as a centerpiece.
The 24 gauge wire accomodates most pearls and stone beads as well as glass and crystal. The wire is lightweight, and wrapped loops are recommended.
