Sajou Glass head pins

Made in France for Sajou in Paris these glass-headed pins are the result of an ingenious process: the pins are placed on a rotating wheel. Above this wheel is a rod of coloured glass, which is melted by means of a blowtorch. On the rotating wheel, each pin picks up a drop of molten glass. This traditional method is the reason the pin heads are not all exactly the same size.
