Bezels

When I went to the craft class on Saturday, we were lucky enough to make a lovely Bezel piece of jewellery.  Mine was heart shaped and had 3 sizes, small, medium and large.   I worked with each of these bezels, but with the smaller of the two bezels, I made the larger one as a piece of jewellery and the smaller ones as two lovely heart shaped stones. My bezel was created the same way as the instructions that I have highlighted for you.  It was something very different for me to produce and I must admit to thorougly enjoying it!!!!!!!!!!!  The only problem is, if you were to go and buy all the materials that you need in the one go, it would amount to a bit of money,

I will get the items that I need a piece at a time, as I really enjoyed making these and I think they would make an additional attraction to the cards that I make as well.

In the inside a piece of paper with words on it was cut out and placed, this has to be glued in with pritt stick or something similar.  If you don't do this, the paper will float to the top of the resin.  You can put whatever you please inside the bezel, before completely filling it with the resin.  I put in pearls, crystals, 2 buttons, pieces of rose coloured stone, 1 dragonfly, very hard gold glitter pieces and the word 'inspiration'.  

To finish off the bezel, I attached a piece of chain with two beads and one charm, which was a key.  The chain can easily come apart to place it wherever you want it to go.


Your bezel has to be left to dry for at least 24 hours, just to make sure that the whole thing has set.  Once it has set, you can see that it turns out to be a lovely piece of handbag jewellery or whatever you would like it to be.

In order to get the bezel that I used, go to the link below where it will give you the details of how to get this bezel or other designs.


Here is my finished bezel and chain, I think that it turned out beautifully and I will be making more once I get myself all the materials.  I hope that you like it.









Here are the two hearts that I made from the smaller Bezels.
