Paris Souvenir

      I found these french postcards, with their views of the Eiffel Tower, and came up with a new pewter bezel to put them into. I wanted it to have texture and simplicity, with an old-fashioned feeling. I got the bezel made, molded and test cast last Sunday.
     I'm always on the lookout for images of the Eiffel Tower. I especially love old french postcards, travel tags and letters. Do you see the legs of the Eiffel Tower in the background, behind the word "PARIS," on this oval.
     I'm itching to make something with these, but went ahead and listed them in the Etsy shop. I might keep my favorite one aside, just to make up into a necklace for myself. 
     I like these simple oval bezels - and I can turn them side-to-side or up-and-down as needed!

Lynn, these are simply beautiful! I love anything old vintage Paris looking and these are just perfect. I'm so happy I was able to get a couple of these while they were still available in your shop!
Your work is amazing and I love the new bezel collections you are doing now...especially the florals!

Thanks, Debbie! I got your message from the Etsy Convo, I appreciate the kind feedback about the new pieces.

I didn't make it to the studio this weekend - busy elsewhere, but I'll be making new pieces this week. Thanks for asking!

I'll say it again...they are gorgeous, with their transparency, and their depth, and their romance!

Thanks, friends.

I guess I'll be making some more of these, huh?

YAY! Because I like them, too.

Too humid for resin pouring today - it's pouring rain and storming instead!

I really like this French/Paris series you've been doing. I do so love the Eiffel tower and think very fondly of the few times we've been there. Your paired down simpler bezels are perfect for the resin work.

Oh la la Lynn! Love them. Did I tell you I'm going back to Paris in Sept? Yeah! Maybe I can come up with some new things for you to cast?? xox Riki
