Stamped Polymer Clay in Bezels from Terry Morris

Stamped Bezels - Polymer Clay TutorGallery (10 pics): “If you take any photos of the bezel pieces from your tutorial, I would love to add them to the gallery at my site.” ~Terry Morris

One of my favorite places for sourcing Metal Bezels, perfect for filling with polymer clay to make into unique pendants and charms, is from my friend Terry Morris at

I actually met Terry a couple of years ago while searching for some high quality but reasonably priced UV Resin, to use on my polymer clay projects. Terry introduced me to his Ultradome UV Resin product, and I instantly fell in love in love with it.

A while back, Terry saw that I had used his metal bezels in my Stamped and Glazed Polymer Clay Bezel Tutorial, and asked if I could send him some pics of the charms and pendants I had made, for posting on his site. I said, Sure.

So I got Willow to take some lovely shots of the bezels for Terry… and then realized I might as well post them here as well, for you all to see.

Plus, the whole batch pictured below, are available for purchase if anyone would like to use them in your projects.

    Cindy, I love the Ultra Dome Resin I purchased at Terry’s site. I also bought several of his bezels in both silver and copper including the hearts.
    both products are wonderful to work with and watching your tute on both the Resin and the Bezels made it so much easier to work with them. I just love the the ones I made and look forward to giving them as gifts.

  2. Catalina, 05 March, 2012

    I love these pieces! I wish Terry Morris could get Michaels to carry it so I can use it in my Jewelry classes. Plus, I could get a discount, too! Just love His UV resin because it needs no mixing and has no bad smell. Not to mention easy to use :-)

  3. Michelle A, 06 March, 2012

    Funny you’re talking about resin today because I actually had a question about it. I use another brand that works well and cures really quickly under the uv light but, it pulls away from the edges; adding a second application helps. Does the Ultra Dome resin do the same thing? It looks a lot thinner than the product I’ve been using. Thanks

  4. Cindy Lietz, 06 March, 2012

    Hi Michelle, one of the nice things about Terry’s UltraDome UV Resin is that it doesn’t pull from the sides at all. And although it is thinner than other UV resins out there, it domes beautifully (it is a surface tension thing) and applies quickly and easily. Plus it is WAY cheaper than any other the other resins I have seen out there. It is worth the shipping to have it sent to your door. Hopefully that helps!

  5. Michelle A, 07 March, 2012

    Yes, it does thanks Cindy, everybody. I thought maybe they all did that – happy to hear they don’t.

  6. Joan W, 09 March, 2012

    Hi Cindy, What do you think of Magic Glos for resin projects? I have tried a few things and it cures quickly in about 10 minutes in a 9-watt UV lamp. It does sometimes pull away from the edges, but is usually fixable with additional applications.

  7. Michelle A, 10 March, 2012

    Hey Joan, Magic Gloss is the product I was referring to. I like it but, it’s sort of a pain trying to fix the edges and you keep having to use more and more of it to get it right. I guess if you were just pouring it into a bezel it would be OK. I do like that it cures so quickly.

  8. Cindy Lietz, 11 March, 2012

    Yeah I agree with Michelle. The other thing is that Magic Glos is so much more expensive. Terry’s is only $12 for 2oz. or $32.95 for 8 oz.! Lisa’s is $9.50 for 1 oz. or $50 for 6 oz. If you go through very much like I do, that makes a huge difference. Plus I find Terry’s really easy to use. Never need to do another coat to fix something that pulled from the edge. One positive to the Magic Gloss is that Michaels carries it so it is easy to pick up and it was created by the lovely Lisa Pavelka, but other than that I definitely prefer Terry’s UV Resin Jewelry Glaze.

  9. pattw35, 07 March, 2012

    Yep – I’m a fan also. I love the Simple Silicone. It is so easy to use and cures so fast. I have his Bezels and Ultra Dome too. Again the Ultra Dome is easy to use , and I cane cure it in the sun (Arizona). The Micromesh Sanding Pads are much easier on my hands than regular sand paper. All in all, you can’t beat his prices and super fast shipping…….. Thanks Terry………..

  10. Cherie, 07 March, 2012

    Yes, I love the ultra dome too. I just ordered the silicone and some bezels. Will post when i try them out.

  11. Michelle A, 08 March, 2012

    Another quick question about the Ultra Dome. Does anybody know if it reacts poorly with things like modge podge or other paper sealers? Is it only recommended to use with clay? OK, two quick questions ha ha ha. ;o)

    Tomorrows tut looks great, btw. I know I’ll learn some great tips as always.

  12. Dixie Ann, 08 March, 2012

    Michelle if you go to Terrys website he has a product that you can
    safely use to seal your prints before you use the Ultra Dome product. He even has a video you can watch and shows you how to do it. Hope this helps.

  13. Michelle A, 10 March, 2012

    Hey Dixie, thanks for the tip. I checked out the site – lots of videos, cool. I think I’m going to give it a try once my other product is finished. I just bought another bottle but, I’m in a big resin phase right now so, it probably won’t last too long, lol. I also have preserve your memories ll that I’ll experiment with when I do try it. Thanks again.

  14. Sandra J, 15 March, 2012

    i too have had problems with the magic gloss pulling away and i didn;t know how to fix it so it put me right off. I even bought some ultra dome resin from Terry but have not used it yet as i was so put off by the way the magic gloss didn’t work that i have not tried it yet. Even after watching Cindy’s video tute on using the ultra dome didn;t give me the confidence to use it. I’ll go to Terry’s site and have a look at the videos there too.

    Hi Cindy
    I’ve been reading a lot about something called ‘Gelli Plates’ lately. Syndee Holt was guest on PCD just recently talking about it, and I wondered what this is and how it can be used with Polymer Clay. Is it possible for you to do a test with this – or even a project – if so that would be fabulous!
    Thanks for all that you and Doug are doing – and have done! I still dip back into old videos to check on projects, tips and information and value this privilege very much!

  16. Patt W, 21 April, 2016

    Cindy – I,too have been interested in Gelli plates. I don’t quite understand how it works. I second the request from Marion Rayner. Let’s have a tute……..please…………smile

  17. Cindy Lietz, 27 April, 2016

    I bought the Stampendous Version of a gelli plate called the Creative Palette but it doesn’t work very well… apparently it isn’t as squishy and the paint wont release from it very well either. I did some tests with it in the Studio Cam. I need to get one of the Gelli Plate brand ones and see if it works better, like I have seen on YouTube. When I do, I will consider doing a demo or a tutorial on it.

  18. Patt W, 27 April, 2016

    Thank you ,Cindy, for replying so quickly. Syndee Holt has really peaked the curiosity in a bunch of us. We are soooooo anxious for you to come back to us…………….sigh. This should be a fun thing to learn……….

  19. Leslie Jones, 28 April, 2016

    I agree with these ladies! I haven’t been interested in using the Gelli Plate with my Mixed Media, probably because I understand it so little. However, if it has a use with Polymer Clay, I might consider the purchase. Although with your use of the Creative Palette with no success, it doesn’t seem likely.
    Thank you so much for all you do! the product demos and technique examples are great.
    I have suggested on YT, and now will suggest here: Please tell us the tutorial or technique you use for the jewelry you have on in your videos. There have been so many that I am interested in making, but have no idea how to find the tutorial (based on the names) because you have so many great ones!
    Just think of it as marketing for your old tutorials! Each mention will spark interest in us all once again!!

  20. Cindy Lietz, 29 April, 2016

    Thanks Leslie! I will try and remember to put a link or do a mention or something for the jewelry I wear in the posts. Is there a specific video or videos that you liked the jewelry in? I can name them and give you links if you let me know which ones.

  21. Chrissie F, 28 April, 2016

    I saw a demo at the San Diego Polymer Clay Guild last year using Gelli Plates with Lumiere paints on polymer clay. From memory they worked fine and made some interesting designs. I have notes about it somewhere… wish I knew where somewhere is :-)

  22. Cindy Lietz, 29 April, 2016

    Yes I know it works Chrissie… I have an inferior plate that I was able to get some cool results with… just not the ones I was trying to get. ||I will eventually pick up a real Gelli plate and do some tests with it.
