I love my Makin's Extruder as it has so many possibilities, but one of my fave ways to use it is for making bezels. I like to use the small rectangular extruder disc, but also the one with the 1/8" of a hole (more on that later).
Carefully remove bezel from cutter.
Using a cabochon with same diameter (or a baked disc that you previously made with same cutter), insert into the bezel.
This is ready for any which way you want to use it....
A more decorative bezel and maybe a Ring to wear:
Roll out some clay on #3 setting (I decorate and texture the back of this if for a pendant or when the back is going to be visible - part of another tutorial). Cut out with a slightly larger cutter.
I'm showing cabochon on center of this cut out, just to show you how much of an outer edge the larger cut out has compared to the cab.
Using a round disc for the Makin's extruder, squeeze out about 10" of clay. Some people call these 'snakes', some call it 'log', but this looks more like 'string'.
Trim off about a 6" piece and fold in half.
Hold left pieces between thumb and forefinger and with right thumb and forefinger start to twist these two strands together.
Keep twisting until you have a nice looking rope.
Take cabochon (without the backing I showed earlier) and place twisted clay rope around it. Trim diagonally so that ends will meet.
I like to decorate strings with a cartridge-less pen. It hides the join really well.
If you want to further enhance your cab, you can use some of the extruded strip and cut it into small triangles to apply like prongs...
