I'm calling this my style over function collection. Not because there is anything wrong with them, but because the bails are not my first preference for material (but I love the look of them). This collection has what most refer to as "base" metal bails (the metal part that connects the glass pendant to the necklace cord). It is plated but that plating won't last without protection if you wear it as often as I wear mine.
Click HERE to see how to easily (and cheaply) protect this type of bail from wearing out with heavy use. And when I am able to find this style of bail in stainless steel (my preference), I will be making the change as soon as possible.
If you weren't aware, I do have another line of stainless steel bail jewellery (not the same style) available for those who prefer or require it. Check it out here: https://flickerbug.ca/collections/stainless-steel-glass-jewellery
