Securing a Donut with a Donut Bail
Turn a gemstone or glass donut into an eye-catching pendant with donut bails.
Spread out both legs of the bail.
Slip the bail through the hole in the donut.
Squeeze the legs back together, over the top edge of the donut.
Open a jumpring then pass the open jumpring through the loops at the top of the bail to keep them closed. Close the jumpring.
Put your finished donut bail onto a length of cording, cable or chain of your choice.
Open the hinged bail on the donut bail finding enough to accommodate the width of your donut.
Slide your donut under the hinged bail until the center of the donut reaches the pin on the hinge.
While holding the donut stable, compress the hinged bail so it captures the donut and secures it in place.
Slide your favorite chain, ribbon or cording through the loop on the bail and you're ready to go!
