Introduction & Materials

I use this coil technique a lot, and it is a wonderful way to add some jazz to the bottom of your earrings or for a pendant. Make instant head pins with just a little wire using this coil method.
You'll need:

A few inches of wire
Round-nosed pliers
Chain-nosed pliers
Nylon-nosed pliers

The length and diameter of your wire will depend on what you plan to use the finished head pin for. Generally, I find that 21-gauge or 22-gauge wire tends to be good general purpose sizes for sterling silver or gold-filled wire.

If you plan to use some extra heavy beads, you may want to bump it up to 20-gauge.
