$ 170  

In this course you will learn the technique of making metal bezels in a variety of sizes and shapes. You will be able to design your bezels in the shapes and sizes that you want, having the perfect bezel setting for a special piece you might want to put inside of it. i.e., an heirloom brooch, earring, pin, etc. If you have something like this at home, please bring it to class if you would want to use it.

After the bezels are soldered, you will be designing the inside of them and then we will be using resin to seal the artwork and bezel pendant. When you discover how easy these are to make, you will want to sit down and make hundreds more!

Materials Fee $25 paid at beginning of class includes:

Metal, bezel wire, papers, book pages, images, vintage papers, rhinestones, buttons, words, glass glitter, small bits and pieces, resin, mod podge.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

Cookie sheet for your solder station, Soldering iron (WELLER 100 watt), soldering iron stand, spool of lead-free solder (I buy the one from Hobby Lobby with the purple label - 675D), flux for soldering, salamoniac block, E6000 glue, scissors, jewelry pliers set, rag or towel, apron

Optional items:
Any bits and pieces you would want to personalize your bezels.
