Silvertone Headpins - 2"
Excellent product for price!
I recently purchased these to add charms to bracelets for my team. After watching a how-to video on youtube, I put my beads together in no time flat.

The pins are fine
I don't think people understand that the very nature of head pins and eye pins are that they do come with a slight bend due to the way they are fabricated. They are not defective at all. Most bead & jewelry artisans know this. A plier with nylon jaws can be purchased at most craft stores and that is what is used to straighten the pins.

Not bad for the price
I bought these headpins mostly for the price and the quantity, however upon receiving them I have noticed a lot of them are bent. I have been able to straighten some of them but not all. They are pretty thick too, so they are durable to a point, although I did break a few. Over all I would only purchase them again if I needed a lot for a small price.

Very annoying product
Despite apparently careful packaging, every single headpin of the 500 I purchased was bent, many in several places and nearly a third in excess of 45 degrees. I wasted 3 hours straightening headpins before I could even begin my project. Also the failure to list the gauge of the wire meant I had to wait until the headpins arrived before I could even purchase the beads. I will definitely not be ordering these again.

Got the job done but bent
Many of these head pins were slightly bent. They were a good price, but they are too think for the smallest beads.

i have always been pleased with OTC purchases but i was not pleased with this item. the quality of the item itself seems to be good but the majority of the pins were bent in half or with several bends. most of the bends were able to be straightened but some kinks remained making them useless for beading, especially with tiny beads.

Some bent but good price
Some of the headpins were bent. But overall good price for what you get.

Ordered 2 packs...over half were tarnished and bent! These are much flimsier than others have purchased in the past. Will not be re-ordering again.

Great Price, Too Many Bent Items
The price was great, but I guess you get what you pay for. Many of the pins arrived bent in the package. If you don't mind sifting through to find the straight ones or unbending them, they'd do the job.
