These handy converters allow you to wear a pin as a pendant! Each converter has a large sized clip on bail. This will allow you to add a pin to a beaded necklace etc. This set has one vertical, one small horizontal and one medium horizontal tube. You will want to add this between beads or you can put it over smaller beads and parts. The clip is the same size as a standard lanyard clip and they are silver plated. Open your pin, insert the pin stem into the hollow tube and close. Now you can wear your favorite pin on a necklace!
Pin stems must be hinged so these do not work with tie-tacks. Horizontal converters also work best on pins with horizontal pinstems that are offset and not directly centered so most of the weight is towards the bottom. The hole in these converters is large enough to fit thicker than normal pinstems up to 2 mm thick.
If you would like to use these for pins with pin stems much longer than the length of the converter tube, you may want to add silicone tubing or bumpers (AKA earring keepers) on both sides to keep the converter centered on the pin stem. These are sold at most craft stores. We also have flower shaped keepers here
. Thinner tube shaped keepers are here
Approx. tube measurements:
Vertical = 12 mm
Small horizontal = 12 mm
Medium Horizontal = 25 mm (1 inch)
