    Learn how to create a simple bezel around a cushion in this PotomacBeads tutorial. The Aurora Seed Bead Bezel for Cushion Crystal is a great way to showcase a stunning crystal in multiple pieces of jewelry. 1. Use a 15/0 seed bead as a stop bead on the end of size 5 or 6 DragonThread. Leave a couple inches for a tail. The stop bead will be part of the project. Add 7 more seed beads. Pick up another set of 8 beads and pass back up the first 8. Add another set of 8 seed beads and pass the needle back up the original 8 again. 2. Watch the Aurora Seed Bead Bezel for Cushion Crystal tutorial to follow along with Anna as she shows you how to create the bezel using a ladder stitch style. 3. Sew the bezel into a drop form. Fill the top of the form with seed beads. Leave a little bit of a gap at the top of the form to add an ear wire to burn the loose thread edges. Create a row on the outside of the form using brick stitch to give it a finished look. The Aurora Seed Bead Bezel for Cushion Crystal is a useful technique that you can use to create a simple bezel for different projects. Whether it be earrings as Anna made or a striking pendant. Have fun creating your own unique pieces of DIY jewelry. Technique learned: �Seed Bead Bezels Project Length: 1"
