Made of strong, light and springy 304 stainless steel, this flat head pin is ideal for ear wires and is a great substitute for customers with metal sensitivities. The springiness of stainless steel make it a great fit for designs and mechanisms that need to retain their shape. Flat head pins offer a discreet, almost hidden end for your component designs; the low-profile head lies flat against your bead or finding ensuring that all the attention will be on the component, not on the pin. 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.
