6mm domed headpin made of solid Argentium silver 935. 6cm length 0.8mm wide headpin with a shiny domed base, this looks like a mushroom and is perfect for setting fully drilled spheres made from our sphere moulds (click here). Argentium silver is 1% purer than sterling silver and doesn’t tarnish so easily. The 6mm domed base is large enough to cover the sanding area from the pouring spout on most of our spheres, or at least most of it. We always recommend you get a finish as perfect as possible on your sphere before fully drilling.
You can include a silver necklace chain for your customer. This will give you everything you need for a beautiful sphere necklace for your clients.

I was amazed by the quality of this headpin the gauge is lovely and thin but it’s still reallly workable to twist round and make into a pendent. The dimmed cup is so secure and strong. This might be a new favourite for me, the quality is exceptional
