I came across a box of vintage army surplus enamel pendants. The outside green is a beautiful olive. Unfortunately the underneath enamel was in bad shape on most of them. What to do?

I secretly have an obsession with all kinds of metal leaf, as well as copper in general. Something about the feel, smell (yes) and  warmth, I have always been attracted to it.

Went to my box of metal leaf and pulled out copper. I gilded the inside of the pendants and they came out fabulous. I used a vintage style bulb to get that warm glow from the copper.
