4 Bails For Large Gemstone Donuts DIY PDF Digital Tutorial

Here are four striking bails using the same design principle to accommodate your large gemstone donuts. The design is simple with only one soldered joint, making it a good project for beginner solders. The bails can be used for rectangular, square or round donuts. Three of the bails are soldered pieces and one a no-solder project. The bails can be made in sterling silver, copper, brass or bronze. You can customize the design further, by using your own stamps or texture hammers on the metal. The tubes at the back of the bails are big enough to accommodate most chains, large gauge neck wires, multi-strand cable necklaces or smaller bead necklaces. They can also be used in conjunction with silk cords, ribbons, beaded Kumihimo cords or larger bead strands.
