The jewelry wire bail shown at right is in a teardrop shape. Many people like this shape better than a circle because it is slightly more complex. Our instructions for making the teardrop jewelry wire bail will be provided within the next month.
The earrings shown at left use the round bail instructions. They are made with a single loop of wire around the 3/16" Super Peg instead of two loops as we did with the bail for the necklace. You will find that it is important to use soft wire when making the necklace bail. It is also important to use 1/2 hard wire when making the bail for the earrings. The earrings shown use our 7x18mm pendant Cubic Zirconia. You can find these 7x18mm pendants here. These earrings use a 3/16" bail and because the pendants are larger, the 3/16" bail works very well.
What do you do with smaller pendants. Certainly for smaller pendants like the pendant shown below-right, a 3/16" bail will be too large. For this pendant we made a handmade bail finding with a 3/32" loop at the top. Please see the next web page for our instructions on how to make a round bail finding with a 3/32" loop.
