This sterling silver bezel component mounting is specially designed to hold one of our calibrated carved mother-of-pearl rounded square cabochons (available separately). Use jeweler's epoxy to secure the cabochon in the mounting. Attach a bail or a jump ring, then string the pendant on a cord or chain to finish the necklace. For a different look, fill the mounting with Colores™ resin or glue a photo or memento into the bottom of the cup, then use Raindrop® clear resin to create an attractive domed finish.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
