I have been using argentium headpins for quite a few years and
although they do tarnish slower than sterling they still tarnish
over time into a dull grey finish (not very pretty) I much prefer
using gold headpins with semi-precious beads, they give such a rich
color in comparison. The obvious drawback is the fact that gold
headpins are expensive. My question is. when making fine jewelry
would it be acceptable to use gold fill headpins? I would of course
add a solid gold clasp and ear setting etc. but, if I was to add
bead detail would it be acceptable to used gold fill ?
Hope you can help with this one, it is a major stumbling block for
me right now.
All the best to you all
