In this faux opal tutorial I’ll demonstrate how to create a deep blue opal cabochon and a rustic drift wood bezel.

I use a lot of different techniques in this tutorial that can be used across many other projects. Feel free to swap out the opal for any faux stone cabochon you want or even take the bezel idea and apply it to beads, jars, coasters and many other projects. It’s easy, fun and results in a stunning piece.
