Project 5 – Working with open bezels – transparent pendant

By

Welcome to the fifth and final of 5 blog posts that feature the projects and skills in my new book – Resin Jewelry, available for purchase Wednesday Sept 18th! To celebrate, I’m giving away 2 copies of the book on Wednesday. Entering your name is simple–just leave a comment on this post telling me what you’d love to do with resin! Winners will be announced Wednesday.

It’s been a big week for me – I’m preparing the last Etsy jewellery update I will ever do (at least, that’s the plan) and changing the Blue Brick’s Etsy site over to a knitting patterns only store. If you really love my pieces, fear not – I will continue to resin on a commission basis, so you can always email me with a request 🙂

Without further ado – here is the fifth project in Resin Jewelry:

Resin Jewelry Project 5

Open bezels is a fancy way of saying ‘rings’ 😉 This project takes you though how to use rings and other open forms to make your own bezels. Sealing the back, attaching hanging hardware and getting a perfect, glassy finish on both sides of the piece are covered. This is a great project for any piece you want to be 2-sided, whether it’s jewellery, or an embellishment, whether you intend to hang your final piece from your Chrismas tree or your rearview mirror. Check out the inspiration gallery below to see some of the things I’ve made using open bezels, and don’t forget, today is the last day to enter the contest!
