This is my most requested class! The Omega Bail Pendant features a wide wrapped loop (bail) for the omega style chains. This style uses the flat backed, smooth topped stone with sterling silver wire. There are 3 variations for the top of this pendant, which uses a minimum of 3 sterling silver wires with a bottom foundation for your stone.
Easier than it looks, we are able to design the top of the bail to be either a plain mustache, a twisted or crossed mustache (as shown) or a braided mustache depending on what style you feel fits your taste or your stone.
This style is suitable for beginner and intermediate wire wrappers. We start with a simple formula that works for every stone regardless of the shape or size, and work our way to the top where we create double rabbit ear loops for the chain to fit, and then on to the many variations to decorate the top.
Each student gets to decide on what they would like to do with the top wires. There are suggestions but this is completely up to what you want to do! To add beads or not, to add a dangle or not, is completely your choice!
