This silver-plated pinch bail mounting makes it easy to create a necklace or dangle with any 5–8mm bead (approx.). Simply open the bail, then squeeze or pinch the outer portion until the pointed ends begin to enter the holes of the bead. Slowly close until both points are inside the bead hole. For a permanent mounting, use jeweler's epoxy to secure the pegs inside the holes. This pendant is plated with fine silver to ensure a bright white color and to help protect against tarnish.
