Apoxie Clay and Our Hand Made Bezels

This pretty Parisian themed necklace was photographed when we launched our handmade bezel collection.

The necklace featured the copper lipped bezel.  It is also available in brass, antique brass and antique copper.  The shapes include oval, circle, rectangle and the square you see.

The project is unique because of the application of black Apoxie Clay.

Photographing the edge of this sample gives me the opportunity to show you how a higher frame was created.  Crystals were also embedded into the clay.  The distressed clay edging makes this pendant look aged.

 

Mad Max for Bead Style Magazine

In the current issue of BeadStyle magazine, Fernando DaSilva has another fantastic how-to project.

The Mad Max bracelet features our hand made Metal Complex bezel bracelet.

This bracelet is available in brass, antique brass and silver.  Fernando embedded beads and crystals into two-part epoxy clay to create this unique and “fierce” bracelet.  You can read all about it in the new issue.

Fernando also has a featured second version in the table of contents!

Handmade Bezel Love

This Metal Complex copper, hand made bezel with lip is the ideal frame to showcase the illustration of my puppy Magnus.  These special bezels look expensive and finished because of the extra lip detailing.  My puppy was nicely embedded in a layer of Jewelry Resin.

I used wire mesh and goat suede lace to make my necklace.
