1. Find a piece of scrap metal to lift your flat pendant off the firing block; it also acts as a prop so the bail will sit in the right position for soldering.  I found a piece of sheet that I shaped into a half moon.

2. Paint Flux onto the joints that are going to be soldered

3. Solder a small pallion of solder onto the bail

4. Butt the bail up to the top of the pendant in the right position for them to be soldered together

5. Once soldered put the pendant in the pickle to be cleaned

6. Polish and oxidise for the finished product
