Head Pins - Phil's Method


Drawing 1

Design earrings.Slip beads onto a headpin to complete your design. Cut the tip of the headpin, leaving about 3/8 to 1/2 inch exposed.

Drawing 2

Using round nose pliers, grip the tip of the headpin and roll your wrist down to make a loop.

Drawing 3

Grip the headpin close to the top bead and slightly reverse the bend to make the loop symmetrical.

Drawing 4

Using flat nose pliers twist the loop open to attach the earwire or post. Twisting keeps your circular shape.

Attach the earwire or post, and twist to close the loop.
