Here's a shot of a variety of bezel shapes and sizes (and depths) plus an attempt at using a bracelet mold:
For this BTW I'm back on the kitchen counter...the bead table has too much stuff on it to actually work. I don't often pore over BeadStyle magazine when it comes out, but this month I was inspired by all the resin projects that were a special feature. My friends at Bead Haven--my local shop here in Hampton--felt the same way, so we decided to put together a little resin play time: Sunday, 26 June, 1-3 p.m. I decided to work on some samples of the pendants that are possible using a pre-made bezel and simple things like chips or jump rings or little flower bead caps or wire swirls.
I had this super-sized bezel that I was able to load up with a variety of chips.
And here's a closer look at the bangle with the little pink "O"s floating in it. This piece came about mostly because I mixed up too much resin and wanted to find something to do with it, but I recalled a bracelet idea like this from the magazine...it's by Sherri Haab. It's not perfect--there are quite a few bubbles and I wasn't patient enough to wait and put the rings in so they'd actually be centered on a cured layer of resin but I'm still going to sand this baby up and wear it!
