Resin filled bezels are beautiful. Even the humblest of objects become a treasure when place in a bezel filled with the clear and durable ICE Resin Students will learn how to make their own bezels in sizes and depths. Techniques and skills covered in the class will include: mixing and pouring resin, coloration of resin, inclusions, using open back bezels, making your own bezels from everyday items and making bezel hangers. Students will leave the class with several resin filled bezels that will cure overnight and be ready to be proudly worn.

Tool list: Basic jewelry making tools will be needed, including round nose and flat nose pliers, files, wire cutters, small hammer.
