Looking for interesting bezels is a hobby and happily I found this copper bezel at the Bead and Button show several years ago. Deciding how to use it took some time. Napoleon imagery is a favorite and I have used "The Coronation" in several resin projects. I never get tired of this painting and have viewed it in person many times while in Paris, so it brings me great joy to see it while I am home. This pendant has been waiting for a very long time to be strung.
Today, after trying it with a dozen different designs over the last two years, it finally became wearable when I added the chainmaille copper necklace. Simple always ends up best.
