This hits on a challenge I had with a student!
Her desire was to use the fortune slips from Fortune Cookies in
Pendants by having both sides appear through glass frames - both
sides were printed! She had a sack of them!
First, we took the glass cutter, used in Dichroic Glass, and cut the
exact size of the fortune slip from thin clear glass - each required
two pieces of glass. I teach Dichroic glass so that was a plus!
2nd, we fashioned frames from Fine Silver Bezel to fit the entire
outside of the glass with the fortune slip “sandwiched” between the
two layers of glass. The bezel had to be wide enough to go over the
edge of both sides of the “sandwich.” Soldered the join and soldered
on the bail.
3rd, TRICKY…we carefully spread down the short end of the
framework and slid the “sandwich” into the frame!!! Then we took the
bezel pusher and pressed all four sides against the frame to enclose
the “sandwich,” front and back side.
It worked…so you need to have some experience with soldering…or
maybe JBWeld would help hold the Bezel in place…the stuff does
leave a dark gray residue, but I have used it and am careful to use
just a small amount. There are two kinds of JBWeld…use the
Quik…shorter set up time.
Let use know if this would be an option, and how it could have
