Ideas for Open Back Bezels

Wondering what to do with our NEW Open Back Bezels? Like all our Pateras these bezels are blank canvases for creating. And like all our components the Open Backs are cast in pewter and plated with precious metals here in the USA.  One last fact: Open Backs work with other Pateras interchangeably like this Sardegna Necklace created by Becky.


Sardegna by Rebecca Nunn

The center pendant is created by placing the Vetri Lace within the Open Back, using the ND Glue to adhere the collage image and glass dome. A very simple process with maximum impact.

    The open bezels are fantastic. We’ve made a couple mokume pieces with them and the response has been great. I love Donna’s nest idea, in particular.

    The wonderful thing about Nunn Designs is that is so easy to be creative and produce “artist” quality designs without too much effort. The examples show that the open back bezel will be easy to incorporate into any design.

    Jambeli is magnificent!

    I am also thinking that spinner pendants would be fantastic using the open bezels. Can’t wait to do some experimenting with these.

    I love these new bezels! I admit that I was a bit stumped with them at first, but the one with the cupped discs and the pearls is so fresh. I was also thinking that resin would be awesome in here. When I first started doing resin projects I did them with open backed bezels. I like that there is detail on the side. Very clever!
    Enjoy the day!
