Since I make so many cabochons I wanted to learn how to make bezels around them . Here are some of my first attempts. Each time it gets a little easier to do.
|Will probably take this one apart and redo it.|
|Turning this one into a brooch.|
|This will be added to an ornament later on.|
|Making it straight & properly aligned is kind of difficult.|
|Really pleased with the way this one has turned out.|
|This was the last one I attempted.|
|Here she is after antiquing & painting the facial details.|

|Several pieces that I finished up . I enjoy working with a variety of beads and found objects. Love the combinations of materials and the way textures and colors work to make an item POP !|
Bracelets are fun and a great way to explore new colorways and use up smaller sets of beads.
|It is a rewarding challenge to sculpt face cabs. Some are to be sold. Others I use to place on bottles, boxes, tins, dolls, and anything else that needs a stronger personality.|
|These are areas I want to expand my skills in. |
All require attention to minute details.
