Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail Shown at right
Our Triangular Jewelry Wire bail is another way to make a pendant out of a larger gemstone or CZ. Shown at right are two pendants, one with a side-to-side hole and one with a front-to-back hole. These instructions will cover how to make a bail finding for either bead. The bead shown near right is our 22x30mm Pear Cubic Zirconia Pendant and can be found in the Pendants sub-department to our "More Bling" area of our Internet store. The pendant at right is a product that we have on order and hope to add to our Internet store in May 2009. Our instructions for how to make this bail finding begin below. These instructions use our WigJig Centaur or Cyclops and 4 inches of 22 gauge wire. This is an advanced beginners to intermediate jewelry making project.
Step 1: Using your nylon jaw pliers straighten a segment of 22 gauge wire 4 inches long. 1/2 hard wire will work better than soft wire if you have it available. Our 22 gauge non-tarnish brass Artistic Wire, Item 0523, is good wire for this project.
Step 2: Using your flush cutter cut that segment of wire to a length of 4".
Step 3: Using your fine step jaw pliers, make a "P" loop in the end of the wire sized so that it will fit on a peg in your WigJig Cyclops or Centaur.
Step 4: Place three regular metal pegs in a WigJig Cyclops or Centaur as shown at right. Place the "P" loop in your wire on the furthest left peg as shown.
These instructions continue on the next web page.
