I just have to share these amazing and inventive items that people have thought up to use as bails and other jewelry findings! First, my all time favorite.

Maybe the piece was just in plain site when they were crafting some jewelry, who knows! Make sure to click on the picture to see a much larger view.

I also found this clever belt buckle bezel that would look adorable with some polymer clay in it, what do you think? I have also seen belt buckles used a small frames, just turn it upside down from how it is shown in the photo and add a back stand piece.
