I always find bezels intriguing.

It must be the endless possibilities for filling that they present.

In fact, I quickly came up with over a dozen different ways you can use bezels in jewelry and home decorations!

I’ve had a bit of a fascination with bezels of all types lately, I think it’s because I’ve been collecting ideas for ways to fill them. More specifically, ways to fill them with polymer clay techniques, surface effects and especially little sculpted clay scenes.

In today’s video I just talk about the bezels, but be watching in the future for different ways to fill them.

Also be watching for future videos on how to make polymer clay bezels yourself. If you want to learn how to make a very organic polymer clay bezel check out my Fantasy Bezels series.

Here are a few of the bezels I show in the video, and also a few others to choose from.
