    Cute pick! Does anyone have any ideas of how to use a donut? How do you attach it to a necklace? I know one way, but I wondered if there are other ways. PLEASE HELP!!!

    Hello, I have used a bail to attach a donut. Also you can make a bail from seed beads. Another idea is to right angle weave a bail with seed beads…. To use seed beads, string several seed beads (depending on the size you use) long enough to go through the donut and long enough to connect to the necklace. I have included a picture….. Hope it helps:)

    Thanks for the question about how to use donuts in necklaces – like Jewelsby Jill describes there’s several possible ways depending on what you like… for instance there’s the “larks head” loop: take a strand of beading wire and fold in two so strands are doubled, bring the loop end under the donut and over, then pull the two strands thru the loop.

    Or – you could also attach two different strands from opposite directions: make a loop on the end of each strand, bringing each strand thru one end of the donut and close your loop with a crimp after you bring the strand thru the donut, repeat for the other strand.
    making a bail using different materials such as seed beeds is good too, or you could also create a bail with use of wire wrapping.
    If you know how to knot, you can also create a bail with use of silk thread and some seed beads. double your length of silk thread, bring one end w/ seed beads for your bail loop thru the donut, after bringing your bail thread w/ seed beads thru the donut, tie a knot at the top of the donut, you can add a bead or two more onto the doubled strands, then separate the two strands and continue beading each strand separately.
    Hope that helps.
