How to Turn Modern into Vintaj - Take 2

It's time to get the recipe book out again today and use a tried and tested recipe - Let's revisit "How to turn modern into Vintaj".

This resin piece was a contradiction in styles - classical cameo cast in modern lime green - beautiful, yet ugly!But, add a few choice ingredients - a beautiful filigree stamping and some coordinating glass beads - and well, the proof is in the pudding, so to speak. And that brings me to today's piece - a glitzy, faceted cabochon.
This piece definitely doesn't fit into the classical category either but it is a lovely shape and it's faceted so it catches the light as it moves. I think it will definitely benefit from the "How to turn modern into Vintaj" recipe.

So let's begin with the cabochon and wrap it snugly in the filigree.

Add some coordinating beads and chain ........and voilà - How to Turn Modern into Vintaj - Take 2!
And like it's counterpart, it looks just as good from the back!Delish!
