Sterling Silver head pins are relatively inexpensive, but fancy head pins, like ball head pins, are another matter. Besides price, having the correct gauge headpin at the correct length is another benefit. And it all can be accomplished with Fine Silver, a micro torch and 3 seconds of your time.
You will need:
• Fine Silver Wire
• Chain Nose Plier - or Tweezer
• Micro Torch
