Let’s have some fun with these easy beaded bezeled Earrings!
For this class we will be making beaded bezels for a Swarovski Chaton, you will have your choice of color. Counts will be given for using other sizes of crystals. For class we will be keeping the focal small so we are able to complete the bezel in class.
There are so many ways to use this basic bezel, you will work the basic earring version in class. We will discuss finishing options to make the earrings uniquely yours. And these earrings work up quickly and make a great gift.
The great thing about this technique is that we are not gluing down the focal piece. What that means for you is that if you change your mind and want to use the focal in another design-you can-as there will be no damage to the piece. This is a great technique if you have a gemstone cabochon that you do not wish to damage in any way.
This technique will work for a variety of types and sizes of focals that we will discuss in the class. You will learn how to bead around a focal piece of many differing sizes. And it doesn’t matter if there is a hole in your focal or not. This class is suited for the intermediate beading level.
Several colors will be available.
