Which bail do I buy to attach to a sterling silver bezel cup and how do I go about this? I want to make pendants. Kind regards,
- Glenda
When using sterling silver there is the option of soldering on a sterling silver jumpring or bail to create a pendant. If you do not want to solder a bail onto the bezel cup, another option would be to use a glue-on flat pad bail. These bails are best attached with Loctite® 454 Gel adhesive for an instant hold or E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive for a more flexible bond.- Maura Buckner, Jewelry-Making Expert
