Heart Bezel with Wire Links

Rochelle Gaukel
9:00 - 4:30
Wed Aug 14

[back to quicklinks]
$ 185  

In this course you will learn the technique of making a metal bezel heart shape. You will be able to design your bezel in the shape of a heart (big or small), having the perfect bezel setting to add the paper of your choice for background, rhinestone, and glass glitter (or no glass glitter if you choose).

After the heart bezel is soldered, you will be designing the inside of the heart and then we will be using resin to seal the artwork and bezel pendant.

We will also be forming the oval wire links and texturing them before we solder the ends closed. All of these get connected by jump rings and the finished heart bezel will be attached in the center.
 

Materials Fee $40 paid at beginning of class includes:

Metal, bezel wire, wire for links, papers, rhinestone, glass glitter, resin, patina. Use of fire bricks.
