A meld cay bail can add quit a bit to the find piece. The top boil (by the author) was textured by pressing chopped-up metal clay scraps onto an oval shape that was folded over a straw. The bottom center bail (by Melanie Dilday) was created by wrapping a long, thin triangle of metal clay around a birthday cake candle, overlapping the tip of the triangle around the base.
