Ideas and Inspiration for
Artisan Jewelry Designers
Fold and roll item #A736 (first image) over into a triangle shaped bail to fit the chain you've chosen. This great connector filigree has loops on all it's edges so you can still use it as a connector for strands, beads or a pendant.
In the completed necklace shown below, I used #A736 as the bail, various bead caps were used with vintage glass beads, the pendant stone is a brown jasper rectangle bead.
Layered to encase the jasper bead are our items #C26, #A189, #A156X and a smoked topaz Swarovski flat back stone.
You could also nest a fan shaped or half round stone inside the folded piece to use it as a connector rather than a bail.
The third photo shows an example of this bejeweled connector with a half round smoked topaz vintage glass stone inside the fold. I've attached chain only so that you can see an example.
Here's another idea for you to try....
I used all these parts along with #T196 bail or loop making tool to form this bail mounting shown in the image below. It has been added to our neck ring #BNR1 which can easily be shaped to fit your neck as you wish.
