These silvertone safety pins feature a top that screws off so you can thread beads, charms etc. onto the pin. To use:open the pin, unscrew the top, add your goodies, screw the top back on, and your beads are secured. Plus you can change the design as often as you like! Each pin measures approx. 2 1/4 inches wide with a 1mm bar. They open easily and are sturdy enough to pin through most fabrics (we tested them on heavy sweatshirts and they worked beautifully).
*Please note: the company that made these pins and holds the patent for them has gone out of business. They are not available by phone etc. so we do not expect to be able to restock this item in the future. Our apologies.*
