Was: New to bezel setting
Hi Gang and Happy New Year
I often make bezels for odd shaped stones and sometimes the bezel
top is uncomfortable to hold or is too large for my fingers to keep
it flat. I have been experimenting with a bunch of ways to still
accomplish a flat bottom. The following help when it is difficult to
hold a bezel down evenly due to size or shape.
Try any of these to see which one works best:
use an eraser to hold the item down flat
use a piece of potato same as with the eraser
use an old jar lid filled with sticky-tac or like (the blue
plasticine like stuff for attaching posters to the wall without
ruining the paint) and press the bezel into the sticky-tac.
Hope these help others as they have helped me. I feel this is going
to be a great year!
