copper wrapped pendant and bail
If this has been done before I'm sorry. I just finished this and thought it might be nice to share. With a bit of practice it becomes easier to bend the wrapped bail into itself.

  • Step 1

    I used a thick gauge coper wire and a thinner gauge. Pick you gauge based on the size of the pendant. Feed both wires through the pendant.

  • Step 2

    Twist the thin gauge wire around the thicker gauge and then wrapped around the base of the pendant continue to wrap up the pendant about one and half wraps.

  • Step 3

    When I got to the top I began wrapping the larger gauge wire at the top. Wrap it very tightly and close together. When I wrapped enough I cut both wires. Then I used my round nose pliers to gently bend the bail into the hole of the pendant. Be careful because the thinner wire likes to straighten out as you bend.
