A lot has been going on in my life for a while now, and it's kept me from getting any serious work done. Now it feels like I'm having to relearn everything I already knew. Kinda sucks, but it kinda also gives me an opportunity to see some of my older designs with new eyes... sort of.

I've been playing around with the designs in some of my older tutorials to help get myself back to where I was before. I've always loved woven bezels, so I started with my Odyssey Woven Bezel tutorial first.


Silverodysseyblueclayfacea by Gailavira

For this one, I wove the bezel around one of my polymer clay face cabochons. Instead of making the spiral at the top, as in the tutorial, I twisted the wires to make a simple accent for the bail.




Mixedodysseycobragreenpolyclayswirlcaba by Gailavira

For this one I decided to combine the woven bezel with my Cobra Head Bail tutorial. I used both gold and silver colored wire to highlight the detail in the wirework. I also used a more open weave so that the green could be seen through the silver. I wasn't sure it would look very good with the design on this handmade polymer clay cabochon, but it came out better than I thought it would.
