Step 17 to Teardrop Bail Jewelry Making FindingAlternative Configuration (Continued):

Step 17:  When wrapping one wire around another, it is important that the two wires remain perpendicular to one another.  For this reason, we are going to need to bend the long wire segment so that it is perpendicular to the wire below the teardrop loop.  To start this bend, grasp the wire with your bent chain nose pliers as shown at right.  Note that you want your pliers slightly below where you want the bend.

Step 18:  Push the wire so that it is perpendicular to the wire below the teardrop as shown below-left. 

Step 19:  At this point we need to wrap the long wire segment around the wire below the teardrop loop one time.  To do this without distorting the shape of the wire, we need to hold the wire with our bent chain nose pliers.  Change your grip on the wire so that you are holding both wire segments above the pendant as shown below-center.  Hold your bent chain nose pliers in your non-dominant hand. 

Step 20:  While firmly holding the wire with your bent chain nose pliers, bend the long wire segment 180 degrees as shown below-right.
