Wini, I love your question, now I can through out an idea I have had
in my head for many years. A Magician friend from long ago wore a bra
hooked up to a small battery. She had Christmas lights sewn into the
bra and made a spectacular unrivaled costume.
Segue forward to putting a piece such as yours into the best light?
For the electrically adept among us, is there not a way using fiber
optics and perhaps a hearing aid or watch type battery incorporated
into a clasp to solve Wini’s dilemma?
I use many natural stones in my pendant design and want so very much
to back light them in such a manner that the inclusions such as
dendritic patterns or rutiles can be highlighted. I have tried open
backs, shadow box designs, wire wraps, anything to allow light to
penetrate from behind, to no avail.
I know I can design the clasp to include a battery, design the chain
to include the fiber optic lines.
Help, I will gratefully give you the first one I make work as I wish
it too. Thanks, Teresa
