Get To The Point !

If you are a fan of making tile bracelets then I think you'll like this new design.
You will no longer have to make each tile one at a time. With this new CaBezel mold you can make five at a time, then lift up the mold place it back down and make 5 more. That's 10. Enough to make a bracelet to fit most wrists. It is so quick and easy now!
Each rounded triangle tile will be 1 3/4" long and 3/4" across at the widest part.
You can then choose to cut each triangle apart or leave them together.  For the bracelet on the left I kept all 5 triangles together. I made straight cuts across the top and bottom without cutting around all of the points.  For the bracelet on the right I chose to cut each triangle apart.
My method for both bracelets was  foil topped with alcohol inks. Both bracelets are strung together with clear elastic.
This new design should be available for purchase at Shades of Clay in about 2 weeks.

New manufacturer found for the CaBezel Jewellery Molds!

I am very pleased to announce that after more than 2 months of searching I have finally found a great little company to manufacture the CaBezels for me.
I have spoken to several different companies, tried out various types of photo polymer, (found out that not all of them are compatible with polymer clay) and in the end (with the help of Bev), learned a whole new language where photopolymer is concerned. So look for a few new designs soon at
                                                                        This is a peek into some of the research that I've been doing.

Here's a  sneak peek of just a few of the new bezel shapes.
This tile bracelet was made using "Get to the Point"
This necklace was made using "Lemon-Egg"
The examples below are also using the new "Lemon-Egg" CaBezel molds and some white acrylic paint.
