- Using a decorative metal stamp on a solid copper tube-top bails is an easy way to sign your work, or simply give a secret little accent to the back of a piece. Stamp the bail prior to gluing.
- To match the color of the mesh choker, and make the stamped design "pop", darken the bail using Win-Ox™.
- Glue the cabochon or other focal piece to the bail.
- Slide the choker onto the pendant.
