Headpins & Eyepins
Headpins and Eyepins are useful findings to have in your bead stash especially if you make earrings. The headpin is used to hang beads from earrings or turn a bead into a pendant once a loop has been at the top of the pin, (click here to see a short video) once the bead(s) have been threaded on. Eyepins are also used for making earrings. The loop sits at the bottom and stops the beads from faling off and you still have to make a loop at the top of the pin to hang it from the earring finding or thread of your necklace/bracelet. The difference between headpins and eyepins is that the eyepin allows you to hang an additional item at the bottom of your earring such as a charm or pendant.
