Headpins and eyepins are a very important part of your basic jewellery making kit. They can be used for a number of different jewellery projects including earrings, charm necklaces and bracelets, rosary beads and more! Headpins are made from wire and have a flat or decorative end at the bottom of the pin to stop the beads falling off. Eyepins are similar to headpins only instead of a flat end they have a pre-formed loop at one end. They are ideal when joining components together in jewellery pieces such as beads to create rosary style creations. When using either headpins or eyepins you will need to form a loop at one end of the pin. When creating loops you will need to use a pair of round nose pliers.
