Our clay order arrived the other day along with some CaBezels. These are a type of "mould" that helps you form a cabachon and a bezel that fit together. I was dying to try them out right away and I must say I was delightfully surprised and quite impressed with how they work. I had so much fun experimenting with them I got carried away and started creating all sorts of things. These are just 2 pendants and some post earrings made from some left over canes. I did some experimenting to figure out a system that I liked.
I prefer a hole going right through the piece rather than a channel attached to the back. This way I can finish the backs off with a pretty texture.
I have more pieces made but they are still in the sanding and finishing off pile with more ideas I plan to work on. I will keep you posted.
