Topics: Choosing the Right Bail

Q.
How do you select the right size bail? I want to use the bails for donuts and other pendants. The pendants are generally medium to large size.

A.
To figure the right size, open a slide gauge to the size bail you're interested in. Place the opened calipers where the bail would go on your pendant. Does it seem large enough? Small enough?

Another important aspect when buying bails is the bail type. There's a wide variety of styles, each designed for specific beads and pendants. For detailed information on the types of bails to decide what bail is right for your project, view ''A Guide to Bails'' article.
