I wonder if anyone can help me to find a supplier of 'thingys' which are used to stop pendants with larger holes falling off of headpins. They are small flat, cup like shapes and are the perfect solution to a problem i have all the time!

Any help or tips for accomplishing this task would be greatly appreciated!

There is more than one solution to this problem.
1- the bead cap - sterling silver, tibetan silver or silver plated.
2- use a clear or matching colour seed bead on the head pin first and then add your larger bead.
3- Instead of a head pin use silver wire and start by coiling it into a little tail then add your beads. This gives an interesting finish to the pendant.

I nam now transferring my extensive range of glass beads and jewellery making findings to my new web site from ebay. So please check it out and see what you think. One flat rate postage no matter how many items you buy!
