Sold by the inch, you can source the exact amount of silver or gold bezel strip for the job – meaning less waste.
Gallery wire and bezel strips are versatile and simple to use, opening up a world of opportunities for creative jewellery designs. Wondering how to use gallery wire? Form your cabochon setting and cut the gallery strip or bezel wire tightly around the stone. Solder it in place, before finishing off the piece as usual. Then set the cabochon with a bezel rocker, pushing the claws down over the stone. For inspiration, check out our guide on making a cabochon ring with a gallery strip setting.
