Using Silhouette Cameo® to cut Metal Clay Bezel Wire



I'm running behind... again.... I'm starting to think that this state of perpetually playing catch up is my normal schedule, which means I'm not behind but rather right on time, ha! On my last 4PAM I promised to show how I would bezel set my enameled piece, but I got carried away in the studio and forgot to order more silver clay... I'm late and forgetful (artist stereotype much??) In an attempt to get back on schedule I'll be posting the remaining 3 processes this month in a flurry over the next 10 days... errr... that's the plan. So, in the meantime, here's the second 4PAM for March, a new video demonstrating how to use a Sillhouttte Cameo® cutting machine to create galley style bezel wire out of COPPRclay. I hope to try this process with PMC paper soon... after aforementioned catching up is complete (pbfft!) All the pieces pictured were created using this process and there's so much more possible with this crazy modern tool.

Oh, and a big thanks goes out to my better half Steve who wrote, recorded, played and even sampled the sound the Cameo® makes while cutting. It's bagpipe, reggae, techno... I'm trying to come up with a witty name for this genre of music...
