The hole of my bead is too large for the headpin. Is there any technique I could use to keep bead on?

Fitting A Bead With A Big Hole Onto A Headpin
by: Alice

Put on a tiny seed bead that is bigger then the hole but fits on the head pin without coming off.

Or,take a small part of air dry clay, stick it in the end of the bead then run the head pin though the clay and the bead and let the clay dry.

Sometimes putting a bicone bead in the end of the large hole will provide a smaller entry for your wire and still hold things together.

I have used the smalled bead cap I can find. It adds a decorative touch as well as solves the problem!
