Working more regularly at the bench produces momentum. New ideas pop up, but old projects resurface as well. Suddenly the issue that stymied me before may disappear as a solution presents itself.

It took a couple of tries to figure out how to hold everything securely while soldering the tube in place, but eventually I remembered enough tricks: holding the pendant vertically with a third hand, using super glue to temporarily hold the bail exactly where I wanted it, and placing a tripod on top for light pressure to keep the bail steady while the solder melted.
I like it hanging on a simple black rubber cord. Now I just need to work on the coordinating clasp.
