Q.
What is the proper way to attach a charm to a charm bail? I have tried closing the loop as you would a jump ring, but it is not tight and the charm still slips out of the bail. Thank you.

Close the loop on the bail after the charm is attached. Place a small amount of adhesive on the bail at the opening to seal the gap. Loctite® 454 Gel is a great adhesive which has a fine point and is good at gap filling. E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive is also a good adhesive for metals.
