Non Bezel Bezel

When hot connections are not an option, for example when heat sensitivity of materials are to be joined or lack of a torch, then you must find a cold connection technique that will work. In this class we will explore several ways of achieving this goal using tabs, internal tabs, staples and even one hot connection technique using wire legs.
