Fold-Over Pendant Tutorial

Ask any group of jewelry fusers what glue is best for attaching metal bails to glass and you are certain to hear a variety of opinions - often contradictory.

An alternative to glued-on bails is to fold the top of the glass pendant to create the channel for your cord or chain. These "fold-over" pendants can be both unique and elegant - and you never have to worry about a glue failure sending your glass crashing to the ground.

Here are some examples of fold-over pendants:

This technique is accomplished without special tools and it does not require you to manipulate hot glass.

If it sounds difficult don't worry - it is exceptionally easy once you know how.
