Learn to use fine silver and a butane torch to make your very own head pins. Fine silver is a great product for the simple fact that you don’t have to bother with pickling or using harsh chemicals. Not only does Kriss show you how to make small gauged head pins, she shows you the proper way to work with and control really thick wire. Kriss uses this fun and simple technique to make head pins out of different gauges of wire as well as different lengths to use in a variety of her favorite projects.

This class has a run time of 18 minutes.

Great safety information especially if you have children. This gal is very sweet, smart and conscious. I highly recommend her Fusing videos. Thank you so much for sharing. Love and Aloha from Maui. :)

I decided I wanted to take my jewelry making skills to another level. I found Beaducation on someone's Pintrest. After viewing Kriss Silva's ball head pins tutorial I was hooked and knew I had to try working with a torch. I'm so glad I did!!! She's a great teacher, and I've learned so much from watching her and others on Beaducation. Beaducation has opened up a whole new world of possibilities! I feel alive once again and so excited to explore new ideas and techniques. I thank God for Beaducation and the inspiration and empowerment I now have to try something new.

I just can't seem to get enough! I am very new to jewelry making and Beaducation always seems to have the instruction I need to feel confident to start the next new piece. Fusion is something I definitely want to learn but it was so scary to me with the torch and the heated metals. Kriss you make it look easy by taking the mystery out of my fear of the torch! The balled head pin is within my grasp now. I feel ready to play with my husband's torches and see what I can do. Thank you so much!
