How to make a two wired head pin!Sounds a little funny but if you are a jewelry designer this is a simple tutorial on how to make a two wired head pin you must try out. I actually have been doing a lot of wire working research, mainly looking at lots of other artist’s designs and trying to figure out how they make their beautiful pieces. I have purchased a few tutorials myself and have learned a lot. But this technique I kind of figured out all by myself.
So, lets get started!
First here is the small list of tools you will need.
- A torch
- 20 gauge copper wire
- Liquid flux
- Flush cutters
- Small bowl of cold water
Dip the end of the two wires into the liquid flux. You may want to put a small amount of the liquid flux in a small container which is clean.
(****I have not tried this yet without using flux, I just know that the flux is a great way to clean the copper when it gets heated up. So this step could probably be eliminated.)
Next, fire up your torch and heat up the copper until it makes a ball at the end. This happens really fast.
Once the ball is there, quickly quench the wire in a bowl of cold water.
