Making Your Own Headpin
This is one of my favorite headpins to make and add to my Boho chic style jewelry. It’s super easy and really unique. All you need are wire cutters, 20 gauge wire, a hammer and a steel block.
Using wire cutters, cut a piece of 20 gauge wire to 2″ in length. The angle of this photo makes it look as though it’s less but believe me the wire is 2″.
Using a hammer, flatten one end of the wire as shown. You want the end to be flattened wide enough so the bead you will be using does not fall off.
Next, thread the bead onto the wire then wire wrap the bead onto the wire as shown in this previous wire wrapping tutorial.
Here is an example of how the beads look on a wrap style bracelet I created. You can put these on charm bracelets, necklaces and even make them into earrings.
