This is a versatile tutorial. I will show how to make one of my handmade bails, how to make an all in one bail, how to use a store bought bail, and how to make the pendant, of course! Many different materials could be used for some wondeful pendants. I used a dragonfly charm for the example but there are so many beautiful charms on the market, don't limit yourself to just looking for the examples I gave. I don't want to sound like a broken record, but take what you learn and make it yours. Have fun with the new designs!

I remember sketching the flintstones cartoons from the tv as a child. When I was about 7 I had a broken clasp on my favorite necklace and my mother took me to a local craft store and pointed to a wall that said jewelry. " find the piece you broke and replace it", she said.
