Lately, in between special orders, I’ve been working to build my bracelet inventory. Bracelets are much more time consuming due to the amount of bezel cups in each one. When working with Lisa Pavelka Magic-Glos UV Resin, it’s imperative to keep the bezel cups perfectly level. I try to shave off time by not separating each one, but the bracelet must be placed length-wise under my UV lamp in order for the bezels to levelly cure. And what do you know… the bracelet won’t fit under the lamp unless I disconnect it.
My method is to start designing the bracelet in one piece, so I can get the flow of elements from one bezel to the next. Then when it’s time to add layers of gloss I remove one of the connector rings in the middle which then gives me 2 pieces of bracelet. I finish my process of layering and filling until complete which involves reassembling the bracelet.
I have 3 more that I want to finish to add to my currrent collection shown below. These are available for purchase on my JeWeL 4U Etsy shop.
I’d love to hear from you: What do you think of the bracelets? Any ideas for improvement in my work flow process? Any experiences you’d like to share?
