Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail Jewelry Making Finding Step 21Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail (Continued):

Step 21:  Using your flush cutter, cut the excess wire on both the wire tail and the initial wire segment. 

Step 22:  Where you cut both wire segments, you will need to squeeze the cut end of the wire flat using your bent chain nose pliers.  It will be best to squeeze with your pliers and twist at the same time while holding the triangles with your thumb and forefinger on your non-dominant hand. 

Step 23:  In the picture, above right, you should notice that the triangles are not oriented as needed for the pendant to hang properly.  At this point, we need to twist the triangles 90 degrees so that they are orientated as shown below-left.  It is important to twist the triangles in the direction so that you are adding 1/4 turn to the wrap of the wire and not so that you are undoing the wrap by 1/4 turn. 

Step 24:  The final step is to use your finger nail to slightly pull the two triangles apart.  Once you have them slightly apart, you can use your bent chain nose pliers to bend the triangles so that they are open by about 15 degrees as shown below-center. 

Step 22 Step 23 Finished!   ;-)

See the picture above right for a pendant necklace made with the triangles wire dangle and a pair of earrings made with the round bail instructions found beginning on page 8
