Step 20: Holding the pendant tightly with the thumb and forefinger of your non-dominant hand, wrap the wire tail tightly around the wire segment below the circles about 2 times until there is no gap in the wrap. See the picture below-left. If possible wrap this wrap in the opposite direction to the initial wrap. If this is done perfectly, the cut end of the lower wrap should end up next to the cut end from the upper wrap with a very small gap between them. This may require you to change the bend of the long wire segment so that is it on the proper side of the circles.
Step 21: Using your flush cutter, cut the excess wire. Using your bent chain nose pliers, squeeze and twist the cut end of the wire until it lays flat. When completed your pendant should appear as shown below-center.
Step 22: At this point, you can separate the two circles slightly as shown below-right. Do not separate by more than about 1/16th to 1/8th inch.
Some people may decide that they don't like the small gap between the two circles. This is personal choice. When you don't separate the two circles the jewelry wire bail will appear as shown at right.
