Glass bezels are great! You can make your own by using a bottle cutting tool from Delphi. This tool is also pretty handy to convert old wine bottles and beer bottles into drinking glasses and votive holders. Check out this video from Six in the Suburbs Blog to see how easy it is to cut glass bottles. However, if you aren’t quite ready to go down the path of cutting glass, we have a solution for you here at Rings & Things: Glass Bezels already made and ready to fill with all of your wonders!
The possibilities with these glass bezels are really endless. Because they are clear, you can use them as a frame with metal back or you can fill them with resin so that you can completely see through them. We have come up with several designs using them and I just love how they all turned out!
I also planned on making one with a real ant corpse, but started I crying when I tried to freeze the ant to cast in resin, and ended up releasing the ant into the grass to play in the sunshine. If I ever find an insect that has died of natural causes I may have to make a new pendant with an bug preserved in resin. Well, I hope I have inspired you to have fun with this new medium. ~~Tiffany
