Actually I made this piece awhile back....a lady in town wanted its chain extended, so it was sitting on my workbench. Got to thinking, here ya go, another thing you can do with a mount, and it's easy-peasy, too!
I used this mount:

You could also embellish it with dried flowers, Iced Enamels and Ice Resin, as Cindy Cima Edwards did:
Here is her tutorial, you're welcome to a copy. Here is a link so you can come print one out for yourself:
Linzi Alford likes to use Swellegant on resin cameos and make them look ANCIENT....that's another way to embellish your mount!
She wrote a great tutorial about doing it....and you are most welcome to a copy of that, too, if you'd like!
