The right bail can add a lot to an otherwise ordinary pendant.
I wanted to add interest and appeal to my pendant without the cutting and filing of metal so I used a bit of wire wrapping.
I first make my bezel and then solder on a jump ring. Then I add some wire around the base of the jump ring along with a small decoration such a sterling charm or metal beads.
The bail itself is not altered but the area just beneath the bail is where the design is added. It’s simple and easy and the results are lovely.
