This box of well-constructed pinch bails is made from better materials and sturdy enough to take some abuse. The shiny finish on the connector surface is elegant and the colors can match to chrome, stainless steel, fine sterling silver, platinum, gold, white gold, bronze, copper, brass, or gunmetal jewelry parts. Installing the clasps is easy and quick by using a pair of pliers with rubberized coating tips to prevent slipping and scratching, opening the bails, and applying a small amount of pressure to close the bails and push the prongs into the pre-drilled holes in the pendant. The rigidity of the metal has a good balance of being easy to maneuver but stiff enough to hold tight. The top loop is wide enough to slide through strings, cords, or chains up to 4.5mm. The width can also be adjusted by squeezing the loop.
These attractive clamp findings create elegant looks for jewelry pieces such as cabochon necklaces, focal or lentil beads, pearls, crystal, ceramic, jade, or other gemstone pendants, chandelier parts, or bracelet charms. It can be used to convert a pin into a pendant like a breeze. They can also be used in making dangling earrings by cutting off the removable top loop or adding a jump ring. The usage is so broad that it can also be used in making key chains or arrowheads.
