48- Hexagons and Jewelry Making Tips


So, I'm kinda late to the game, but in my defense, I wasn't on Instagram all that much in the last couple years. How about you? If you make jewelry, do you already know all about Metalsmith Society? In 2018, jeweler, Corkie Bolton started this lovely community of metalsmiths on Instagram who are so generous with their collective knowledge.

 A tip from @theloveleighlocket via @metalsmithsociety to make a hexagon bezel using an allen wrench inspired me to finally use this tiny amethyst cab I was holding on to.

Seeing the photos all blown up like this really make me notice all its flaws so I will probably go back at some point and rework it... but, Behold! Pendant #48!

Oh, and speaking of Instagram, are you following me? Maybe you should! @sarustarjewelry
