Lampworked headpins
 
What kind of wire do you use if you want to make a headpin with glass in the shape of a leaf? And what gauge? Can it be done with silver or will the silver just melt away. Copper?

I use copper wire. I went to home depot and stripped the wire. The gauge varies, but they all work for me. (20-24?)

Christina, could you post a picture of the finished head pin? I need a visual reference.
