I joined a class to learn to create my own soldered bezels and took to it like a retriever to water.
I have added it to my jewelry making “addiction” list. This latest pendant is one I created to specifically fit around the cameo. I also painted the cameo, which is called Young Lady with Bird.
Once the bezel was soldered and antiqued I placed the cameo inside and sealed it in Ice Resin. The necklace came after the bezel was complete and I loved co-ordinating the beads to the cameo for a fun, cohesive, and very feminine piece.
