    DIY Art Deco Jewelry




    Advertisements
    One of my hobbies (with the exception of vintage shopping! ) is jewelry making. I want to make an Art Deco necklace to wear this fall. I found these really neat glass cabochons online. However, my problem is I can't seem to find the bezels to hold them. I asked a lady that I usually buy jewelry supplies from (in fact she had something quite similar on her site) and she said she didn't know where to get those. She feels that style bezel they just don't make them anymore. Does anybody have any suggestions on where I can find a jewelry bezel for this odd shape? I looked on eBay and all over the internet. Plus, Google sends me the run around by not exactly giving me what I ask for. Errrrr.....

    The cabochons that I bought are located here:

    Wow, those are really unique. I've never come across a bezel shape to fit that style. I imagine the best you can do is try to find vintage ones to fit rather then a modern maker.
    You might have some luck casting your own with metal clay- I haven't used it before but it may work.

    Maybe the seller has an idea?
