Crystal Bezel Ring with Apoxie Sculpt

By Carmi Cimicata
 
 
Materials: Apoxie Sculpt Modeling Compound in Black, oval antique brass ring bezel, 6 x Preciosa Jet Navette 8x4 mm, 6 x Pear shaped Crystal 8x4mm and 1 Crystal Chaton
 
 
Bezel ring blanks provide you with an endless opportunity to show off your favorite crystals.  You can also make bracelet, earring or pendant bezels to match.
 
I selected a group of my favorite crystals and did a little sample design on my table.
 
The Apoxie Sculpt is a two part clay-like system.  You mix two equal amounts for two minutes until the final colour is uniform.  This “clay” now has a working time of 1-3 hours and then it air dries rock solid, no baking required!
 
I filled the bezel ring with Apoxie Sculpt.
 
Then I carefully pressed all my crystals into the clay.  At this stage I added a few impressions to the clay by poking into it with a tooth pick for texture.  All I had to do now was wait for the clay to cure for 24 hours.  Project complete!  The crystals are permanently affixed.
