Sometimes drilling a hole to hang a polymer clay pendant or dangle is the easy and obvious solution, but it isn’t always the most appropriate or fitting for your piece.
I’ve done videos on several different types of purchased bails…
… but what if you don’t have one on hand that will work? And what if you don’t want to wait to go shopping or order one online?
In today’s video I’ll show you how you can quickly and easily make your own custom bails for polymer clay and other jewelry pieces; and use only a few inches of wire.
Choose thick or thin wire, neat coils or messy wraps, and either bare wire or add a patina to get a unique look that perfectly suits your project.
Tools and Materials:
- 20 gauge wire in finish of your choice (you can also use 18 gauge or 16 gauge)
- Beadsmith Wire Looper Multi-step Ring Looping Plier 5, 7,10mm (these are the ones I show in the video)
- Flush Cutters (these will cut up to 14 gauge wire)
Enjoy the video and happy creating!
