I made the bead on the end of a 20 gauge stainless steel wire. These headpins are sturdy and the glass bead will not come off the end! Use them just like headpins, or come up with a new idea. It's best to use either an old pair of cutters or memory wire cutters. (or wire cutters from the hardware store)
I can also make these on dark annealed steel wire- for a chunkier more steam punk look. OR on 22 gauge stainless steel wire- to make it more delicate and easier to bend and work with.
If you want your headpins on a different gauge or type of wire, put it in the comment section of the cart.
Otherwise, they will be made on 20 gauge stainless steel wire.
