Step 11 to 3/32" Handmade Jewelry Wire Bail Jewelry Making TechniqueAlternative Configuration (Continued):

Step 11:  At this point we need to bend the wire so that it will go through the hole in the pendant.  Grasp the wire with your bent chain nose pliers so that if you make the bend at that point, it will go through the hole in the pendant with a little room at the top of the pendant.  See the picture at right.

Step 12:  After making the bend, the wire should appear as shown below-left. 

Step 13:  Thread the long wire tail through the hole in your pendant.  See the picture below-center. 

Step 14:  By hand, using your finger tips, bend the end of the wire up until it crosses the wire below the circle of wire.  See the picture below-right.  Try to push the wire with your fingers as close to your pendant as possible.
