A new place for my old rugged cross

I made this cross by hand.. formed the backplate from bronze -soldered on the bezel filled with resin and applied the stamped key hole piece and aged it with patina and looked at, just looked at it - for a very long time About a year in fact!   It needed something fabulous- a big chunky chain- but not blingy, YES YES that's the ticket.  I found these beutiful beads in my stash that I purchased from my very first gem show.  Now they found their place on this beautiful necklace.  They were just made for this big cross :)  Hope it inspires you!
