Default Looking for specific bead components...

I am searching for a specific type of bead component.

It is a pendant drop with a bail and a bead post (as seen in the photos).

I believe the glass bead is “made” on a screw-nut and then screwed onto the bail/back?

Not sure about that, though.

Can anyone direct me to a source?

They look like glue on bails.
If that's the case
The beads maybe formed on a cabochon mandrel or off mandrel on boro punty.

I haven't seen that exact bail - it's nice! - but there are many that could have much the same effect. Have you seen the glue-on bales at Fire Mountain?

Here's the link for the bails pages...
