Tips: Allow time for bubbles to rise before setting bezels in place for curing. Scoop out with tweezers or pass a heat source over the top to pop them. If using dimensional adhesive try placing a small cup or glass over charms to protect them while curing*. If using copper charms dimensional adhesive may develop a blue tint around the edges.



  1. Choose a section of book page for your bezel. Apply packing or matte adhesive tape to front and back of that section. Rub tape down well.
  2. Use punch to cut out a ½” circle. Brush super glue lightly around edge and set aside to dry.
  3. Coat bottom and inside edge of one bezel with a light coat of super glue. Position prepared paper circle into bezel and use cotton swab to smooth down securely. Let dry.
  4. Apply thin layer of dimensional adhesive or resin into bezel and add a beaded spacer where desired. Allow to sit for a few minutes for resin to level and to watch for bubbles.
  5. Add more resin to cover spacer as desired. Again allow to sit for a few minutes.
  6. Set bezel in a safe place to cure per product instructions*. If using UV resin place into UV lamp for 10-20 minutes or until cured.
  7. Use chain nose pliers to open loop of one ear wire and attach at top of bezel. Close loop.
  8. Repeat all steps for second earring.
