Lady Liberty Silver Dollar Bezel

from The Bead Doodler
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Lady Liberty Silver Dollar Bezel
Lady Liberty Silver Dollar Bezel

Pattern Description:

I have an 1897 Morgan silver dollar that was minted in my Father's birth year. I wanted to do something with it besides keep it hidden away in his cedar box, so I devised this bezel to make it into a pendant that I could wear. The original was somewhat irregular and needed a little tweaking, so I made another bezel for this 1921 Morgan silver dollar.

This bezel is sized for a silver dollar, but with a little adjustment will work with any cameo, shell or coin that doesn't have the domed front like a cab.

Instructions are given for a bail so this becomes a pendant
