Tube Top Bails (Pendant Plates)
Tube-Top Bails are an inexpensive, yet classy, bail for gluing onto your handmade flat-back glass art, gemstones, found objects, etc., creating wearable art pendants that are well-balanced.
The silver plate, gold plate and copper plate bails fit chain and cord up to 5mm in diameter, making it easy to slide your custom pendant over the end of almost any pre-made choker or necklace chain. The gluing surface on the smaller plated style is 12x6.5mm, and the larger size has a gluing surface of 17x11mm.
The tube at the top of the sterling silver bails will accommodate chain or cord up to 4mm. The smaller sterling tube-top bail has a gluing surface of 8x5.7mm, and the larger sterling bail has a gluing area of 13x6mm.
For additional customization, you can texture these bails with a ballpeen hammer or your favorite texturing hammer, and you can oxidize the copper and sterling options.
