Bails that pinch

Once in a rare while the bails that I make pinch the neck when worn
on a rigid neck collar or bar. These bails were not made from a ring
but were made from a strip of sterling, which I then beveled the
edge. It doesn’t do the trick. Can you suggest something. I don’t
want to go to bails made from rings since I often make a wide bail
to keep the pendant from turning, or for purely esthetic reasons.
