Who doesn't love a dolphin or a whale?! These cute Open Backed Dolphin and Whale Bezels are made for filling with resin. Go transparent for double-sided playfulness or fill these pendants with sparkly ombre effect resin for a totally tropical look. Complete with hanging loops, these open bezel would look fab on a thin natural cord or fine silver plated chain and simply need the addition of a snap bail or jump ring.
We suggest using either our FILL-IT™ or COAT-IT™ epoxy resin for making resin jewellery in open bezels. Use a silicone doming mat as a base surface and DAM TAPE to stop any leaks.
Our plated jewellery findings are made from base metal (examples of which can include copper, zinc, nickel, and aluminium). Base metal jewellery and findings will tarnish a lot more quickly than precious metal jewellery (such as sterling silver). Here are our handy points to keep your jewellery and findings looking tiptop:
Keep findings and jewellery of the same metals/plating in the same container and store in airtight containers with some anti-tarnish paper. Both sterling silver and plated jewellery will tarnish in contact with air.
Remove jewellery when your skin is going to come into contact with liquids and chemicals (e.g. shampoo, alcohol gel, perfume, washing up liquid, bleach, etc).
Try not to wear your jewellery when carrying out basic jobs around the house (gardening, bathing) and deffo don't wear jewellery to the gym, pool or beach! Oils in our skin (and sweat!) will degrade the plating on the outer layer of base metal jewellery.
The less you wear your jewellery, the slower the plating will fade.
Avoid polishing or cleaning your jewellery excessively. This can cause unwanted wear and tear that could corrode the plating faster than normal.
Top tip: Pop a piece of masking tape on the surface next to your bezel... when you're filling the mount add a blob of resin to the tape - that way you can poke it with a cocktail stick (or your finger) to check if the resin is set, rather than ruining your hard work and putting a fingerprint on your masterpiece!
