bails are available in two sizes.
The medium bail will accomodate a small beaded necklace and most chains, including the 4mm Omega necklace.
The small bail will accomodate most fine to light weight chains.
The Y piece will be viewed from the side on pendants. For this reason,
I prefer the look of either the "walking" or "running" Y for pendants.
Medium bail shown in sterling; Y-shaped key "running"
Chain opening: 1/4" x 1/8" (7mm x 3mm)
Distance from top of bail to top of bead 5/8" (15mm) when assembled.
For this size choose loops 1/4" (6mm) longer than your beads.
Small bail shown in sterling; Y-shaped key "walking"
Chain opening (approx): 1/8" x 1/8" (3mm x 2mm)
Distance from top of bail to top of bead 3/8" (10mm) when assembled.
For this size choose loops 3/16" - 1/4" (5-6mm) longer than your beads.
