Attaching a Bail - Style 3

Step 1

For this technique, choose a 12.5mm Vine Pinch Bail and a 15.4x14mm Swarovski Elements Crystal Briolette.

Step 2

Insert one notch of the bail into the hole of the briolette.

Step 3

Insert the other notch of the bail into the other hole of the briolette.

Step 4

Grip both sides of the bail with your flat nose pliers or your chain nose pliers. Gently squeeze both sides of the bail.

Step 5

The bail should be tight enough that the bead does not slip out and the bead still wiggles slightly.
