I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I had purchased Cabezels, a bezel cabochon mold combo. I have gotten a chance to use them since they arrived and they are amazing! They create very smooth bezels and cabs, and with some sanding and buffing they really turn out beautiful.
Oh gosh you guys! I am so freaking excited! I finally bought some CaBezels! I’ve wanting to buy them for ages and finally did! Yay! There’s so many sweet shapes and sizes, they arrived today and I’m already making new stuff. I’ll post photos when I’m finished.
Other then that I bought a new drill, a Dremel 9100 Fortiflex, I haven’t set it up yet but I’m excited to try it. I was using an old dental drill to do the drilling for my jewelry, and it finally broke on me. Plus with the Dremel I’ll be able to use the various sanding and buffing bits to speed up my process quite a bit, as I currently hand sand and buff all my pieces.
I also recently moved to a new apartment, and I now have an actual dedicated space for making jewelry! Before it was just all over my apartment, kitchen table, coffee table, couch even at times, so this is a really nice change. I also took a bit of a break after ARTitude wrapped up and didn’t work on anything. It wasn’t till last week that I got back into it with my new studio space and it is just so much fun, especially now that I have an actual table to sit and work at!
I’ll post pictures of new works soon.
