Photographic Image Jewelry
This album was entered almost 5 years ago, before alot of folks were mounting things in resin.  I have become more and more intrigued with the idea of embedding photos and scrapbook paper images under lenses, glass cabochons, and in the equivalent of what some are calling 'liquid crystal'.  Here are a few designs that I have photographed in the past, you can use our art bubbles instead of resin to top your scrap collages.  We sell the bezels and lenses on the site at http://www.bsueboutiques.com in 25mm and 30mm.  At this time no 2X art bubble lenses are made in the oval shape, but we do have clear, unfoiled cabs in 18x13mm that do a nice job in our 18x13mm mounts.  Check my blog archives(you'll find the link at our website at http://www.bsueboutiques.com, click on the link that says Jewelry Making Outside the box) for more projects I've made with lenses and cabochons.

This is my new favorite piece of jewelry, I never get tired of wearing it.  I used some of the funky brass ox beads I carry at my site as well as stampings to which I mounted scrapbook images under magnifying lenses.  I chose for the top lens a scrap of a piece of old sheet music, and for the bottom a photo of a Victorian couple.   It hangs long, about 28 inches, looks great on a turtle neck with a suede jacket!

I used some old button and sewing papers under the glass in this deep 'pie crust' mount to make a small collage.   Then I mounted the lens and glued to the top.  It made the definitive 'button' brooch!
"Very unique!! I love it."

Fun and easy.  Here is an image taken from a 1930's poetry book.  I bonded the pie crust mount to the fancy plaque, glued in the scrap, then topped with the magnifying lens.

These are some  items you can use to make a fun and easy photo, scrapbook or miniature collage brooch.   The fancy backing piece is in the brass ox brass stampings section, the pie crust bezel and four pronged mount are in the bezels section; the art bubble or lens is in the Design Embellishments section.  You make your collage in the bezel, then mount the lens in the four prong mount.  Glue the bezel to the fancy backing; then glue the mounted lens to the top.  Let cure, then apply the pinback....in 24 hours should be ready to wear and enjoy!

A fun piece.  I used a Mike's Hard Lemonade bottle cap for the central motif.   Then I used graphics from the bottle's label to mount under glass cabochons as side stations and drops!  Topped off with handmade lemon beads.
