    Hello,
    I make crystal pendants using polymer clay and recently Iím wanting to make pieces with a larger gauge wire as the part at the top where youíd thread the chain/strap/etc for the necklace to hang... but I canít for the life of me figure out what brand or gauge or hardness would work best. Any suggestions? I need something sturdy enough that will keep a round shape.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi. Try using a bail ( Baille ) like these,

    or embed a heavier guage jump ring into the clay,

    I recommend aluminum craft wire. I use it a lot and it's very effective!
