  • Shorter pin heads

    Im trying to put little stone beads on the end of some chain to dangle.
    I can do this by using the long pin heads(the straight metal rods with a flat bit at the end, is pinhead the right name?) but I feel Im wasting a good 80% of the whole thing.
    Do you guys know of anywhere that sells pinheads in shorter lengths?

    Headpins, they are. You should be able to get 25mm but no shorter I think.

          tbh i think shorter headpins are harder to use
          i get 50mm ones and find that the extra left over means i have more to play with iyswim. it makes it easier to grasp and twist round and secure
          sorry if i'm not explaining this well
          also you can save the cut off bits to use in other ways

            head pins

            I use the 50mm ones as I find them easier to work with.
            I buy them by the 1000, so it's actually more economical to use these rather than the shorter ones
