What type of bail or connector would you use with a clam sea shell?
- Janet
A glue-on bail would be ideal for this application because it is an attractive way to show the beauty of the shell without being a distraction. To apply the bail to the shell, select the side of the shell you would like showing. Place a dab of E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive to the back side of the shell, then let the glue cure according to instructions on the package. Once the glue is set, hang the shell from your favorite cording or chain.
