I am thinking that this is what you were talking about
They are figure 8 bails https://shop.rings-things.com/cart/p...dCategory=1061
You can also use these http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...page=&includes
The key is that the bail needs to face forward so when you put them on the ear wire they face forward and not to the side BTW, I just ordered 3 gross and will have them for sale when I get them!!!
