Q: "Can these be used for craft purposes? I see you sell Size 3 safety pins by two medical supply manufacturers. Are there larger packages available? The safety pins I see in the craft shops are so expensive. I use them for bead projects. Thanks. Susan."
Answer: Yes, the safety pins that Safe Home sells are great for craft purposes. Use to make beaded safety pins for accessories and safety pin based Christmas angels, bracelets, flags, tea light holders, etc. We sell safety pins in sizes 1, 2 and 3. The safety pins we sell are nickel plated or nickel steel. The nickel steel pins are more expensive. Both can be used for projects or for medical purposes.
