Polymer Clay Pendant Bail Tip

By on Friday, April 03, 2015 2 Comments

Handmade bails on pendants should look as good on the back as it does on the front. It is the hallmark of a meticulous artisan.  Jan Mortasi over on Flickr shared his awesome polymer clay pendant bail tip. Not only did he create a jump ring bail in a novel way, he also added a rubber "O" ring in such a way the pendant remains stationary on the necklace cord.

If the necklace cord is thin, he recommends using 2 "O" rings. This tip is excellent as the clasp remains at the back because the pendant is made to stay in the front!  Brilliant.

Hardware stores and chain mail suppliers will have these rubber or silicone "O" rings.

Also note his beautiful logo block with a little rhinestone in the center.

  1. Clever ideal. Would never have thought of using those cute little O rings that way.

  2. What a great idea! I've got a whole slew of those O Rings in white - never knew what to do with them and this is a perfect way to use them for so many things.

    I also went through the Flickr pics and saw so many more neat kinds of ways to add a way to string whatever on a pendant....
