Wire looping pliers or round nose pliers
Flex shaft and 15-gauge cup bur or wire rounder
|Make 2 loops|
|"S" link with 2 loops|
Use pliers to create an "S" link from 18-gauge brass wire but wrap two adjacent loops on one side of the link.
Cut the excess wire. File the ends until smooth using a flex shaft and 15-gauge cup bur , if you have them. A less expensive alternative is to use either a wire rounder or a needle file.
Use your pliers to pry apart the two adjacent loops.
Adjust spacing as needed so the bail allows the pendant to hang evenly.
Open the lower jump ring and attach the bail to the pendant.
