Teardrop Jewelry Wire Bail Jewelry Making TechniqueTeardrop Bail Jewelry Making Finding Alternative Configuration (Continued):

Now we are ready for a slightly more advanced bail project.  This project has a lot of steps.  We are going to document all 25 steps because following all these steps is what allows us to make this bail finding in a very consistent manner.  This is an intermediate jewelry making project. 

Step 1:  Using your flush cutter, cut a segment of 22 or 24 gauge round wire three inches long.  For this project, soft wire works much better. 

Step 2:  Position a 3/16" Super Peg and a regular metal peg in your jig as shown below-left.  Place your wire on the jig so that 3/4" of wire are on one side of the peg and the remaining 2 1/4" of wire are on the opposite side. 

Step 3:  Hold the short 3/4" wire segment, down with one hand while you wrap the wire around the pegs two times.  See the picture below-center. 

Step 4:  Remove the wire from the jig and it should appear as shown below-right.
