Funky headpins

Julie Holmes

I must confess, I have only attempted to make headpins once.  These were made by creating a spiral at the end of my wire with round nose pliers and then hammering the spiral flat on an anvil.  

Here are some more shapes that are taught at The Bead Fetish.
I have to say, I've been inspired by the posters before me to try making balled headpins and rosey headpins.  We'll see how that goes.  Hope you are all enjoying learning some techniques that are perhaps new to you.  I know I am!

You can do it !! Love the examples of headpins you have shared...I am so used to balling up headpins that I needed a reminder that you can do cold headpins too!!
