Bails are your go-to findings when creating pendant-style jewelry or other swinging drops. Barbara van Look, Marketing Content Development Group of Firemountain Gems explains that a bail is a jewelry making finding that transforms a bead, donut, flat-backed component and other pieces into a necklace pendant or drop. Jewelry bails expand design options without metalsmithing or soldering.
Bails for necklaces and other jewelry styles are created from a wide variety of materials (mostly metals such as sterling silver, brass, “pewter,” precious gold and more), in a range of sizes and styles. You can choose from pendant bails, glue-on bails, donut bails or other specialty categories that match your specific components. Or, shop by brand including Aanraku bails and JBB Findings. Coordinate jewelry-making bails with your design scheme in silver, gold, brass, gunmetal and other metal tones.
