Topics: Findings, Bails

Q.
I have a glass kiln with which to make cabochons into pendants. I am wanting to make one pendant with a smaller one hanging from it. I know I can use high heat wire to join them while fusing. However, is there a type of finding that I can use in order to glue them together after they have been fused?

A.
A glue-on flat pad bail, glue-on fold-over bail or upeye finding could be applied to the bottom of the larger pendant. A second matching finding could be glued to the top of the smaller pendant. A jumpring could then be used to connect the two bails together.

These bails are best attached with E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive for a strong yet flexible hold.
