Jewelled Pendant

I have had these Ranger 2ins x 2ins, antique copper effect Memory Frames forever, I don’t think they are available anymore, but I could be wrong.
I cut out a square of text print paper first and stuck it on a scrap of card to give it a firmer base. I then proceeded to add the tiny weeny pieces of broken jewellery to the centre bit by bit.  The pieces were so tiny I almost made myself cross eyed in the process.
I used E6000 glue to secure everything as I didn’t want anything to come astray over the passage of time.
I also had to be careful that all the pieces fit perfectly under the dome, anything placed too high had to come off …….
……. and nothing could stray beyond the the edges otherwise the cover would not sit neatly within the frame.
I was really pleased with how it turned out, despite the squinty eyes and the lady who received it as a present to mark her eightieth birthday was going out to find a chain on which to wear it, which thrilled me as I thought she might have just display it on a shelf.
