Here is the fairy flower focal with a piece of nice chain I would like to use. When making a bail this is the first choice that should be made.The size of the chain shall indicate how big the opening in the bail should be. To do it by finding a chain that fits the bail after its done may limit your design choices.
I used some 14k gold filled wire about 16 ga round half hard to make the bail. Using the rod from my jump ring tool, I made 5 coils about 2 mm bigger than the chain.
To attach the bail I bent the petal forward and inserted the wires through, trimming to a short length and bending them at a sharp right angle to hold the bail firmly.
And when you turn the pendant around the bail is secure and hidden from view. The flower seems to float in front of the chain. Next I will use Renaissance wax to seal the copper , add a closure to the chain and send it to Etsy. Hopefully it will find a home.
