Create a ‘floating’ bezel to capture an unusually shaped focal! Right angle weave (RAW) features strongly in this piece to create a unique design that not only effectively captures the handmade polymer clay focal but shows it off. An embellished tassel and shaded bail complete the pendant, to be hung on the optional beaded chain for a very wearable necklace.
What is a floating bezel, you may ask? I coined this term to describe the way this ‘bezel’ appears to ‘float’
around the edges of the focal rather than be a continuous piece of bead work all the way around. The name of this piece, “Whatever Floats Your Boat,” comes from the floating bezel idea combined with the “boat-like” shape of each of the bezel components.

Full notes will be provided for the chain, but as it is optional and depending on time left in class, this may or may not be demonstrated. The tutor will be available afterwards for questions regardless.
