This 14-karat yellow gold pendant features a cup and peg; the cup offers a decorative scalloped edge and the peg is textured to provide a stonger bond with the adhesive. Complete the pendant with a half-drilled pearl or gemstone bead. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on the twisted peg; the twisted peg provides more surface area for the epoxy for a stronger hold. The bail is slender, tapered and slightly rounded; simply add a chain to complete this delicate and stylish necklace.
• Pearls for cup and peg settings should be at least 2mm larger than the cup size.
