Making Your Own Headpin

Aug 15, 2014


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.

Cut Wire

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″.

Hammer Wire

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.

Wrap Style Bracelet

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.
