Purchased to use as bail for the Swarovski wildfire focal.
LOL, I'm even using the correct terminology... Molded well around the unusual shape of the pendant. Looks secure so far. I am pleased cause it is nice w/o detracting from the pendant.
This is a simple bail, and being such, works well when you don't want to deflect from your design. It's well made and very sturdy. The only thing you might want to consider is, if you "adjust" the bail a little it works much better. If you use something to round out the top part of the bail, it seems to hold a bit better. I would also advise that you not use a bail thicker than approximately 10 mm. Just a suggestion. Other than that, the metal is quite thick, so it is a strong bail.
I needed a very simple bail. I thought that this would be perfect for the project I was working on. Then I actually tried to use the bail; which seemed to be spread a fair distance apart when I received it.
I placed the eggshell pendant I had made in the middle of the bail and "pinched" it together. The bail would not close properly to hold the pendant so I had to use a different option. Plus I just didn't think this item was as nice as the picture online.
sleek and beautiful! this is a perfect bail for those larger gemstone pendants.
