This simple bail, formed from a single piece of wire, is quick to make and very versatile.
It can be used for any top drilled stone, donut or as the finishing touch for a pendant.
Due to the large loops this design is particularly useful is you are using a chunky chain like Viking knit, chain maille or a multi strand necklace, as the bail allows free movement of the pendant.
The main tutorial teaches you how to make the bail for a front, top drilled stone, also included are 2 variations, the first is for a side drilled or drop stone and the second shows you how to wrap a donut, including instructions on how to calculate the length of wire required.
Please read through the instructions at least once before starting.
