Simple use with silver clay:
To set the bezel cup with ease, roughen up the back of it (use a rough file or sharp scriber) to give it some tooth, and press into silver clay when wet. You can also carve or drill an area in the clay when dry and drop it in.
For extra strength, you can even drill a hole in the bottom of the bezel cup and push into wet clay so that the clay bulges up slightly through the hole. This will create a mechanical bond, like a kind of rivet. Just ensure the depth of the stone can accommodate this.
Perfect for setting those natural gemstones that cannot be fired.
Please note: Bezel cups are manufactured to the size advertised, or may be slightly oversized because we know building up an undersized stone is easier and offers better results than forcing a bezel to accept an overly large stone. Please be aware that, due to stone-cutting tolerances, this cup may not accommodate all like-sized stones.
