3/32" Jewelry Wire Bail Jewelry Making TechniqueAlternative Configuration (Continued):

Step 7:  When you have completed bending the wire from step 6 it should appear as shown at right.  If the long wire segment isn't centered and pointing to the middle of the circle, adjust it slightly until it is.  You can put the circle of wire on your round nose pliers to help preserve the circle of wire while you adjust the long wire segment.

Step 8:  At this point we need to bend the wire using our pliers so that the wire will go through the hole in your pendant.  The pendants that we used here had a side-to-side hole.  These procedures would need to be modified slightly if you have a pendant with a front-to-back hole.  The first step in bending the wire is to grip the long wire segment with the tips of your bent chain nose pliers as shown below-left.  You want to grip the wire as close to the circle as possible.

Step 9:  While holding the wire as indicated in step 8, bend the wire about 30 degrees as shown below-center.  This initial bend is necessary to bend the wire to avoid the top of your pendant. 

Step 10:  After completing this first bend the wire should appear as shown below-right.
