If the words ‘Open Bezel Charm’ themselves are puzzling, then this post is for you! If you’re a resin craft lover then this is also for you! Open Bezel Charms are metal charms that can be worn as earrings, necklace, or bracelets or even used as keychains or ornaments. They don’t have a metal backing, and therefore are ‘open’ (fun fact: there are ‘closed’ back bezel charms that are equally fun to craft with).
We recently added Open Bezel Charms to our lineup of glitter and resin crafting blanks, but not everyone knows what to do with them. Have no fear! We asked our Sweet Home Vinyl Creative Team member Crystal (Instagram:@cboedeker83) to share her secrets for creating custom open bezel charms.
Some tools you will need:
Open Bezel Charm (your choice, they come in different metal colors & shapes)
UV Lamp (commonly sold for nails)
Silicone Stir Stick
And any of the following decorative elements:
AND NOW . . . Here's Crystal:
SIMPLE STEPS RECAP:
1. Place your charm on a piece of Resin Tape
2. Squeeze UV Resin into the charm shape & use a resin tool to fill the space.
3. This is the fun part! Add your decorative elements--glitter, mica, shapes, beads, flowers, etc. Crystal used Glitter Chimp 'Light Year' Glow Mica Powder & Musical Note shapes.
