Double duty polymer bail

Holt and Montarsi on PCDaily

Syndee Holt tweaks Jan Montarsi’s easy polymer bails to get double use out of a brooch/pendant.

Syndee added a small hole at the bottom of Jan’s domed circle bail design which allows it to accommodate a pin that slides diagonally from the top hole to the new bottom hole for a brooch. Or slide a cord through the top two holes to wear the piece as a pendant.

Jan makes his bail on a domed form and uses liquid polymer to adhere it to the brooch. You’ll find more examples and clever adaptations on Flickr,

    I tried to open the KazuriWest.com web site, but got a message that that domain has expired. Is there another web site?

      Update: The link from “disk sets” in your post did take me to the site.

        As I’ve already commented on Syndee’s FB post…Jan’s original was Ingenious and she just Double Downed Ingeniousness…
