Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail Jewelry Making Technique Step 31Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail (Continued):

Step 31:  Remove the wire from your jig and it should appear as shown at right. 

Step 32:  Now connect your bead to the round loop in the wire.    You may need to open the round loop in the wire with your bent chain nose pliers slightly to get the bead into position. 

Step 33:  Once the bead is in position, grasp both sides of the wire loop immediately above the bead with your bent chain nose pliers.  This preserves the round shape of the loop.   

Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail Jewelry Making Technique Step 32Step 34:  While holding the loop securely, wrap the wire tail around the wire segment below the triangles 180 degrees or about 1/2 way around.  This step is very similar to steps 18 and 19 on page 24.  

Step 35:  Now wrap the beginning wire segment tightly around the wire below the triangles to fill the space below the triangles with wraps.  This step is similar to step 20 on page 24.   

Step 36:  At this point you are ready to cut the excess wire using your flush cutter on both the long wire tail and on the beginning wire segment.  See step 21 on page 25 for a similar picture. 

Step 37:  Using your bent chain nose pliers, squeeze and twist the cut ends of the wire flat. 

Step 38:  Using your fingernail, open a small gap between the two triangles.  Use your bent chain nose pliers to expand this gap to about 15 degrees as shown above-right. 

This completes our Triangles Jewelry Wire Bail jewelry making project.  We hope you like one or more of the variations.
