Find a no-fail balance point on any pendant with this simple tweezer modification
By Helen I. Driggs
Sometimes I have a difficult time deciding exactly where on a pendant I want to solder on the mounting hardware, whether it’s a bail or jump ring. When it comes to heavy or asymmetrical pendants you simply can’t just measure, there can be a lot of guesswork for pieces that may tip forward, lean to one side, or require an off-center bail. But I discovered one simple tweezer modification that lets me find a no-fail balance point on any pendant, even before I scribe and drill any holes in the piece.
