Bezelform's Engraved Wire Wrapping Mandrel Set Giveaway!

By on Monday, January 07, 2013 208 Comments

The trickiest part of wire wrapping around a cabochon is when you have to shape the wire bundle.  If you look at a cabochon sideways, you'll notice there's not much flat surface to work on.  Cabochons are polished so the edges are also curved which adds to the awkwardness.

So using a mandrel helps a lot. More importantly, it saves time if you are making a lot of these types of wire bezels.

A couple of years ago, I came across Rick Swartzwelder's Bezelform mandrels - products he came up with because he wanted to speed up his own wire worked pendants.  I eventually  bought the unengraved set below and have been using them ever since.

Unengraved set
I like them mainly because I cannot easily find small oval mandrels. The graduated sizes also increases my design options.  The handy case is very sturdy and  helps prevent pieces going astray. You can see some examples of what I made using these mandrels in the original giveaway post.  

I didn't buy the engraved set because I wanted to save a bit of money! Besides I knew Rick provided the instructions on his website on how to apply even marks around. But there is an engraved version for those who want to save some time. What's more one engraved set will go to the lucky winner of this giveaway! A fabulous opportunity!

Engraved set
There are plastic mandrels on the market or you could make your own from polymer clay, but  the advantage with metal ones is their robustness.  I have lightly work hardened metal wire with a hammer on mine!

See these pieces? Rick made each of the cabochon bezel in 30 minutes!


He also provides instructions on his site for prong style bezels. These will take longer to make than the traditional ones but worth it if you don't like all those long wire tails!


Other artisans also liked the metal mandrels. So Rick has responded to requests for more shapes. His latest set is the faceted gemstone set.
