Bezel cups -- findings for resin jewelry making!

Rings & Things is introducing cool new bezel cups in its line of wholesale findings. You’ll have a lot of fun using these to make resin jewelry that expresses your creative personality!

They’re made of solid raw brass, and basically look like teeny tiny saucepans (1/8″ deep) — only they have a loop or two loops, instead of a handle. You just pour resin or epoxy right into them.

Turn one-loop bezel cups into nifty custom pendants; make the two-loopers into connectors. Both styles come in either round or oval shape, and either of two sizes.  (Broadly speaking, they’re in the neighborhood of an inch.)

Down in the lab, Rings & Things has discovered quite a few fun things that “resinate” nicely into EasyCast or other resin, in bezel cups. We’ve implanted tiny toys, glitter, candy sprinkles, and little cutouts from photos or other images. (For these, cut out right-sized images using our free template.)

We’re bringing in a full range of great epoxy resin supplies, like Castin’Craft items, to go along with these bezel cups. You can rig out your resin workspace with molding equipment, a resin how-to book, pigments, mixing suppliesand more.

You can also capitalize on Rings & Things’ line of TierraCast® frame charms and square-cup rings to explore even more resin-casting possibilities. Additional resources include our free .PDF “Tips for Epoxy Resin” sheet and the growing roster of resin jewelry in the Design Gallery.

    Looking at that baby in the top picture, I think I want one of each shape & size of these bezel cups. I’d love to wear my family photos around my neck instead of hanging ’em on the office wall!

    Any suggestions on where to find copyright free images?

    Hi Stacey, do you mean images of the bezel cups? You can use ours, if you credit us. (A link to us would sweeten the deal) 🙂 We have a page about Rings & Things copyright information, for reference.
