Bezels are one of the most versatile pieces in jewelry making. You can decorate them with anything — patterned paper, photos, and text, or even chalkboard paint and glitter! These projects all use bezels in a unique way. From necklaces to journal wraps to bracelets, they can be used to display your personal style like a mini art canvas for your accessories and wearable art projects.
