Thanks a lot! June 1, 2012 Reply Beadaholique You will need to know the depth of your pendant. The Swavoski crystal hearts that you mentioned all list the depth in the product description. If you look in the description for the pinch bails, they will list complete measurements for the bails, including what depth pendant they will accommodate. So you should be able to look at the measurements and make sure that your bail will accommodate a pendant that is the size you'd like to use. June 1, 2012 Reply Beadaholique As for using a pinch bail versus a jump ring, it's just an aesthetic preference. The bail will give a more polished, finished look than a jump ring would. But in some uses, you may prefer the look of the jump ring (or perhaps a triangle jump ring, which gives a clean, subtle look). June 1, 2012 Reply Karen Davis I have a ton of pinch bails going to waste. They aren't sturdy for actual beads. I am starting to use them on metal pendants but anyway… as you can see on the video, her top drilled heart bead never got a tight fit with that pinch bail, they aren't made for anything thick, especially what she used it for. This is my opinion and trust me, I've tried using them for all types of top drilled beads for years and have given up on the bead aspect. June 2, 2012 Reply Barbara Cameron Thanks! September 23, 2012 Reply Heather Cowell Thank you all your hints. I have just got a glass foil heart 30 mm and want to make it into a pendant. I am thinking of a head pin then a nice loop rather than these bails that don't seem that reliable. New to me this! Any ideas please. The head pin has a big bottom!! March 22, 2014 Reply Beadaholique @Heather Cowell A nice sturdy pinch bail (one of the larger ones we offer) would be quite capable of holding your pendant. You could, of course, try some wire wrapping instead, if you prefer the look of it. http://www.beadaholique.com/c-61561-pinch-bails.aspx?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=social-media&utm_campaign=default March 24, 2014 Reply Cleopatra da3rd Sooo pretty ! 🙂 January 26, 2015 Reply Ana Rodriguez your sound is horrible, cannot hear a word you are saying, with speakers up all the way, making videos requires sound.
