Lately I've been working hard on creating new lampwork jewelry designs. I found I was often frustrated with using a plain headpin to display a beautiful lampwork focal bead. Suddenly it hit me, "Have torch, will create!" And thus was born my new line of lampwork headpins.

I love color more than any other design feature, so I couldn't resist making a variety pack of color, bright rainbow set of headpins for you to play with. While the exact set show has been sold, I can make you another just like it, or with other colors of your choice. Not only do these work great as headpins for focal beads, but could be used alone as simple, pretty charms, or as a striking way to attach disk beads to a project. Whatever you come up with, I'd love to see how you put these great headpins to use!

Since this listing is MADE TO ORDER I can create a set of headpins like those pictured with copper wires, but for the same price I can also make them with brass wires and any combination of colors you wish.

The colors pictured in the photo are: white, black, blue purple, blue, turquoise, copper green, lime green, bright yellow, dark yellow, orange, red, and blood red.

If you are interested in other colors, be sure to convo me with your alternate color choices. The labeled photo shows popular primary and secondary colors that are available. Please allow up to five business days for the completion of your order. Convo me before purchasing if you would like a more exact time estimate.

If you would like headpins with fine or sterling silver wire, or would like me to use silver glass, please convo me for a price estimate and I can create a new listing for you.

FINISHING: These lampworked headpins were annealed in a Jen-Ken digital kiln according to glass-manufacturer specifications and gradually cooled for strength and durability. The wires were then cleaned with successively fine grits of sandpaper to remove any lingering oxidation residue.

OTHER INFO: The headpins were photographed in full-spectrum, diffused light on a glass surface over white silk to ensure the colors represented are as true-to-life as possible. However, please be aware that the camera, light, and computer monitor can all affect the way the color is shown.
