These head pins all have an attractive flat paddle, oar, or teardrop shape at one end. The dual function of the paddle is to both hold beads in place and look elegant at the same time. In fact, paddle pins are so elegant that artisans often use the pins by themselves to make sleek geometric drops without beads. All of our paddle head pins come in solid metals, meaning you never have to worry about damaging a plating when you loop and/or wrap the wire. Choose from solid brass, solid copper, and solid nickel silver findings for making elegant drops and charms.
