_DSC2371a-2017cover-500

I am continually scouring the market to try and keep my pulse on trends. Trends in furniture, clothing, marketing, you name it. It is in following these trends that I’m able to see what shapes might be popular for our jewelry finding line. It has been a wee bit since we added some bezels to our Grande size category and boy did we do it with a BANG. These new shapes are the BOMB!

Here is a preview of the latest findings that we are adding to the Nunn Design Collection January 5th, 2017.


Grande Pendant Drop, Arrowhead & Half Oval!

2017Winter_DSC2461-bezelshapes-570

All three of these new bezels are cast in lead-free pewter and plated with copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver. Made in USA. The designs of these traditional style bezels are clean and elegant.  The backsides are simple, smooth and plain, allowing for any jewelry artist to make their own logo mark.

Although we don’t offer a paper punch to fit this series of bezels, I used the Open Pendants to trace the inside dimensions on my image and then cut them by hand.  The dimensions are exact and the cut pieces were fairly easy to do.  I know this is not ideal, but creating unique shapes that have no punches available is the price we had to pay.

The Grande Pendant Drop’s outer dimensions measure in at 36 x 23 x 4mm with the inner dimensions of 26 x 19 x 2.5mm. The dimension of the loop is 3.5mm.

Technique: I don’t have a tutorial for this exactly, but this video will be helpful. Instead of dropping in the brass stamping, place in a transfer sheet (learn how to use a transfer sheet here), then pour on a final coat of Nunn Design 2-Part Resin. Since these bezels are not open backed, you won’t need to worry about putting on or taking off the tape!

Technique: Like the project above, instead of placing in the brass stamping as shown in the video, place in some large mica flakes and then apply a coat of Nunn Design 2-Part Resin.

More of the same great shapes as we saw earlier with the Grande Pendants, but these bezels are lighter in weight and allow for a totally different translucent look. Cast in lead-free pewter and plated in copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver. Made in USA.

The Open Pendant Drop’s outer dimensions measure 36 x 23.5 x 4mm, inner dimensions 30 x 19 x 4mm. The loop measures at 2.5mm.
