What is the purpose of a headpin?

Sterling Head Pins

A sterling silver head pin is used to attach a sterling silver bead or gemstone bead to components such as ear wires and necklace blanks. Head pins are long, rigid wires with one end flattened to prevent the sterling silver bead from slipping off your sterling silver jewelry. You can align your beads without worry of them dropping off your cord or wire.
