twisty swirly, fun to make your own stuff!

Thats right, why waste your money on useless bails that wont work all the time.

Make them yourself!

I figured I would give it a try, since I wasted my money on useless bails that would not hold like their suppose too.

So here I was staring at my kewl bail-less pendants. Then it hit me. I grabbed my 20 gauge jewelry wire and started experimenting!

Check it out!

Instructions

Cheap

  1. Step 1 1

    I used 20 gauge wire for my bails.

    You also need:
    Wire cutters
    Jewelery pliers

  2. Step 2 2

    Cut off a good size piece of wire. This all depends on what size and heavy your project will be.

    I made mine a bit longer since I was making these for the domino pendants I had made.

  3. Step 3 3

    Take the end of your wire and begin to tightly twist around.

    Make sure your twisty swirl is flat as you do.

  4. Step 4 4

    You should have something like this.

  5. Step 5 5

    Then at the end you want to start twisting the opposite way.

    Depending on the chain that will go through the hole. Do not twist so tightly like you did in the beginning step.




  6. Step 6 6

    Once your done with that end,

    twist slightly.

    *poof*

    Completed!

  7. Step 7 7

    Ta da!

    Just add the heavy duty glue that you use and place it on your project.

    Set it aside and let it dry completely.

  8. Step 8 8

    Just beautiful!!

    Happy crafting my CO&k Buddies!
