  • headpins

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if headpins, but with a ball at the end, instead of being flat are called something other than headpins, and does anyone what the thickest headpins you can get are?

    Thanks in advance

    As far as I know they are just called ball-end headpins, to differentiate them from flat-end headpins.

    Sterling headpins usually come in the various wire thicknesses; the ones I use are 22 ga or 20 ga, but I've seen 18 ga - not sure I'd like to work with those as I would have thought they would be a bit hard to manipulate. I've also bought 24 ga before but they were too floppy for me; as soon as I tried to work with them they bent.
