Hi.... Where can I purchase good quality safety pins at a good price...I am looking for a trustworthy website.  Also which are best for safety pin bracelets?  Steel or Coiless?

Thank you!

Hi Ginger. 

I make these bracelets in my Young Beaders classes. I never thought about using the coil-less saftey pins cos they are more expensive. But you need loops at both ends of the pin for the threading of the elastic, so the regular safety pins are better. You do need quality ones tho. The cheaper ones are often a little "gappy" , and the elastic slides out of place very easily.

Coloured safety pins are fun, too. 

I purchase mine in bulk from a haberdashery wholesaler, so I regret not being able to help you with a website :-(
