        Cobra Head Bail Pendant - Wire Jewelry Tutorial

        Cobra Head Bail Pendant - Wire Jewelry Tutorial

        In this lesson I will teach you how to make a pendant with a bail that resembles the head of a cobra. This design works well on many types of focal beads, but it looks particularly striking on crystal prisms.

        The instructions show a version with a very simple weave for the front piece of the bail. However, if you prefer, you can use different weaves for the front piece to create different looks for each pendant you make. You can even twist the wire instead of weaving, or simply add beads to the weave. Because of the layering effect of the bail, this design also works well if you are going for a mixed metal look.

        The prism used in this lesson is 11mm wide and 38mm long. You can use other sizes, but if you use a larger focal, you will need to start with more wire to compensate for the size. The photos show a focal that is drilled from side to side, however, it is easy to modify this design for a front drilled focal as well.
