What to do - when the Headpin is too small for the hole
You're wiring up a pendant, and the only headpins you have have too small a head for the hole - they just slide right through the bead!
Use a spacer bead with a smaller hole to stop the headpin going through the hole in the bead!
Add one more more spacer beads - I find you can create a very nice look by stacking them - and you can handily stop the headpin from pulling through the hole.
I have a little bin that I put all the little left over spacers from projects into - so that I always have an interesting assortment of beads handy for just such use.
