Optical Lens Pendant

When thrifty finds come togeth­er like this it makes me want to jump in my car and go junk­ing even more. I found the opti­cal lens, vin­tage lace, bro­ken rhine­stone neck­lace piece and book page words while look­ing around flea mar­kets, thrift shops and antique stores. These items were pur­chased for lit­tle of noth­ing but when com­bined togeth­er these lit­tle bits of dis­card­ed items turned into some­thing fab­u­lous.  A beau­ti­ful opti­cal lens inspi­ra­tional pen­dant.

I real­ly like how the lace, words and rhine­stones look encased in resin on this pen­dant. Being able to still see through the lens by using lace cre­ates a beau­ti­ful effect. I attached lace pieces to the front and back of the opti­cal lens. When cre­at­ing this pen­dant, first I attached the rhine­stone neck­lace piece around the opti­cal lens using just enough E6000 to hold them in place. I then cut pieces of lace and words from a vin­tage book and sealed them into place using a sealant by Nunn Design. Once the sealant dried I poured my resin lay­er and let it cure over night. After the first resin pour cured I applied a sec­ond pour which per­ma­nent­ly secured the rhine­stones jew­el­ry pieces in place. To com­plete the pen­dant I drilled a small hole in the top met­al piece of the opti­cal lens and attached a jump ring.

This piece is for sale in my Etsy Shop.
