How to Hang Components from Both Sides of a Tab Bail


It really pays to play with your components to solve a design problem.  I wanted to hang components from the round frames which I had painted blue - see my laser cut wood Shapes and Frames collection.  But there wasn't a second hole below the one for the tab bail.

But the large holes of the beautiful bezel components for Swarovski crystals - courtesy of Tierracast - enabled me to attach them to the frame on either side of tab bail.


You are probably wondering - no way! Those jump rings will surely slip down?  But they don't.  Some experimentation might be required with different jump ring sizes.

Check out this little movie clip which shows how stable the design is :


Long time blog readers might remember my tutorial from the past for turning a toggle clasp into a pendant.  The wiring to connect the main part of the clasp to the bar portion also passes on either side of the loop. This stabilizes the design so wiring stays put.
