Bead Fest Santa Fe 2011 Day 1

On day 1 of Bead Fest I took a class from Kim St. Jean on bezel making.  Very good class and learned more about the use of a torch and soldering to create the bezel.  We worked in silver and copper and a variety of found objects and stones.  The first piece I created used a turquoise cabochon and silver which was textured and had a liver of sulfur patina applied.  The second piece uses card ephemera and copper.  Much to my dismay, I used one of the letter stamps upside down so the piece isn't great.  I like the concept, not too pleased with my execution.  More to come from Bead Fest.
