Print these instructions
15.4x14mm Swarovski Elements Crystal Briolette Pendant
12.5mm Plated Vine Pinch Bail
Chain Nose Pliers
For this technique, choose a 12.5mm Vine Pinch Bail and a 15.4x14mm Swarovski Elements Crystal Briolette.
Insert one notch of the bail into the hole of the briolette.
Insert the other notch of the bail into the other hole of the briolette.
Grip both sides of the bail with your flat nose pliers or your chain nose pliers. Gently squeeze both sides of the bail.
The bail should be tight enough that the bead does not slip out and the bead still wiggles slightly.
