Experiments in Bails

Two pretty cabs and they deserved something more than the regular single wire-wrapped bail.  The first is a terrible picture of a pretty translucent sepia colored agate with a blue rim.  Plan A was to run two copper and silver wires through, and make a coil at the top.  Four wires didn't fit through the hole in the agate, so Plan B had to work.  I used a hand drill and braided copper and silver wire, made two coils and threaded a silver head pin through the agate in the middle of the coils.
The second agate is called Sedona, which really suits it.  I made a balled silver head pin long enough to do a double loop at the top, wrapped it and spread the loops.
