Subject: Anybody know what O Pins are used nfor?

As I was preparing to sell off all of my craft supplies, I came across a package of O Pins 1 1/4" long. What are they used for? (I must be the ultimate crafter/hoarder if I bought something, and I don't know what to use it for!!)

I "think" they are used in sewing and jewelry making. Perhaps you bought them to add beads to them to make decorative stick pins for on cards?

Thanks, Linda, for the suggestion. I probably should have been more clear before. but that's what they were called on the package. These pins have a 1/4" diameter circle on top of a 1" stem with a sharp point, and are much heavier than jewelry eye pins. After giving it some more thought, I think that originally I bought them for halos on some small wood angels, but the stem was too stiff to bend to a 90 degree angle. They must be used as thread or string guides of some kind because of the very sharp point. In any case, out they'll go!
