Working with Wire Episode 4: How to Wrap Pendants-Top Drilled
In this newest addition to our wire series, Episode 4, we answer the question "How am I suppose to attach this to my necklace? The pendant has a hole drilled in the top but doesn't have a bail". So for those of you that have asked this question, and using a simple jump ring isn't what you had in mind, here is your answer as we provide you an easy and quick way to wrap this kind of pendant. Many gemstone pendants come drilled in this manner making things a little difficult if you have not mastered this skill.

Wire wrap, episode 4 Wrap pendants-top drilled
I found the audio on this video difficult to hear/understand part of the time. The pendant looks lovely, When I finish mine, I will make a tiny circle at the end of the loop to ensure non-snagging on clothes. Overall, this was a good idea for top-drilled pendants and is easy to do.Reviewed by: Barbara Dowd from Florida. on 4/4/2014
Beautiful necklace. But why would a person wrap the pendant after stringing the necklace? It is far easier to wrap first and string second. Not only is the string of beads not in the way, but the loop on the bail can be much smaller and neater.Reviewed by: Jill from Sk.. on 3/28/2014
