Project

Fossilized

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? This was my first attempt at making a bezel from sheet metal. What advice would you give someone starting this project? When soldering the bezel, wrap bailing wire around the piece to keep the bezel wire snug against the sheet metal. Mine kept moving as the solder started to flow.

You Can Make This
