Handmade Bezel Resin Hearts

Lately I've been obsessed with the work of an artist named Terri Brush.  She makes beautiful soldered jewelry using all kinds of bits and bobs and her work inspired me to make some resin filled heart bezels.  Sadly,  I was too lazy to do the soldering work, so I figured out an easier way to make heart bezels with super easy to find supplies.  Much easier than I thought it would be, too!  When they were done, I filled them with broken jewelry pieces and extra things I had in my bin and then covered it all with Glaze Coat.  I have to admit, I can't stop making these!

  1. These are so cute! I love how they're constructed with materials that people typically have in their homes. I can't wait to try this! Thanks so much for sharing this, they're awesome!

    1. Hey FTLOC&C! So glad you like them! I've been experimenting with soda cans, but you do need to cut them with serrated scissors. I'm also trying tin cans for the metal. Just be careful when cutting. Wear cotton gloves if you're unsure. I don't want you scraping yourself. :)
