Lost and Found

The lost and found gods have responded to my calls for help.
I have looked through dozens of drawers and bins for this bezel. It is an original bezel hand made by Susan Lenart Kazmer. I had it out and then I put it away and then I finally stumbled upon it this weekend.

I wanted my original because I also purchased a similar piece from her Industrial Chic line which is now at Michaels (the craft store.) Her mass produced one has a lid which I like a lot. But before I use it, I wanted to use the original I had purchased five years ago. I opted to place the image of the two ladies in the bezel. They are from a tiny vintage picture I bought in Paris in April. The picture was so faded...but it seemed to me that the ladies were having lunch with a view of the Eiffel tower. Or maybe I just wanted them to be having a lunch with a matter I decided to make my vision come true.
I knew I had a Eiffel tower somewhere....hello Lost and again!
Then this morning I found it! It fits perfectly, so I just need to do one last layer of resin before I can start adding beads and embellishments to this bezel.

This is just a beauty shot. I didn't notice the drops of water on the leaves until I opened the picture on my computer.
