The distinctive color, workability and affordability of copper make this head pin a versatile choice for your jewelry designs. The copper is an ideal match for COPPRclay™ elements, copper components and other materials; the fine gauge of the pin stem makes it a good partner for small-holed beads in drops, dangles and links. The head of the pin has a slightly pointed dome. The most popular choice for most applications, 1/2-hard pins stand up well in most jewelry styles and still allow the wire to be formed as needed—then hold their shape reasonably well. Choose an appropriate pin thickness based on your design and the hole size of your beads or findings so that they will be held securely in place without wobble or risk of loss.
