Large Polymer Bail Pendant

I strung garnets, fresh water pearls and small labradorite beads on Beadalon stringing material and attached a magnetic clasp. I used wire guards to protect the tension points and to add a nice finished look.
I was able to slide the strung gemstones through the polymer pendant opening because the magnetic closure is less than 6mm. Of course, with polymer you can make the "fold-over" as large as you want. I embedded an eye hook in the point of my polymer pendant so I could attach the jade colored shell pieces.
