A pack of 50 eye pins--25 silver plated brass and 25 gold plated brass. 50mm or 2" long, 22 gauge AWG/23 gauge SWG. 0.610mm. What does this mean? American Wire Gauge (USA) and British Standard Wire Gauge. In the finer gauges particularly, fractions of millimetres are fairly irrelevant. These are mixed eye pins. I will be introducing some copper, antique bronze and gunmetal at a later date so stay tuned. Brass is a metal alloy of copper and zinc.
This is a good starter pack if you have just started jewellery making. They are nickel and lead free, are on the softer side and will be easy to work with light tools and for use with standard 1mm bead holes or even a little smaller. Use your nylon jaw pliers to straighten any small bends. Don't weigh them down with heavy beads. Stick to 4-8mm and seed beads.
NOTE: Approximately 10% of the population is allergic to nickel. In the past, nickel was used extensively in costume jewellery. For the most part, we source jewellery components which are nickel, cadmium and lead free. However, sometimes traces of nickel are used in the plating process or in some base metals. Those with nickel allergies should use only sterling silver, 18k+ gold or inert metals such as neobium. Please keep all jewellery components and finished jewellery out of the reach of young children.
