Step 1
Fold the circle component around a form such as the handle of a tool or a bezel mandrel.
Step 2
Remove the folded circle from the tool and compress the ends together so the pattern lines up correctly.
Step 3
Open an 8mm jumpring and pass it through the opening of the circle. Repeat to add a second jumpring. These will be used to connect the bail to your design.
