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.
