These bezels are fun and easy to make.
What is important about them is that they are mistake pieces that I have saved.
A few weeks ago I set up my table to work on eight Jewelry Clay filled bezels. I was rubber stamping into them (the clay filled bezels) and a few of my stamped impression did not turn out as planned.
Stamping mistakes in clay are relatively easy to fix. I can remove the clay and start over. The ink is hard to remix into the clay, so I usually start fresh. Or I do what I will show you in these next pictures.
I have containers of loose beads just waiting for this to happen. I just press the clay filled bezels right into them.
Tiny glass beads fill any missed spots.
Then I brush Pearl-Ex over the surface.
You would think this was the plan all along.
My mistakes become some of my best samples!
