Ha ha!  The day is mine!
After seeing the slide necklaces on craftychica, i promised i would make one for myself, but wasn't satisfied with the size and ssape of the slides.  So i went to my local Ace Hardware and had them cut some glass for me - (it measures about 1 1/4" by 1 3/8") I used tin foil tape on it, and voila!  The only trouble was, it initially didn't occur to me to dip the eyepin in glue before sticking it through the foil.

I think i'll try soldering next.

neat! I like it!  You could get yourself a glass cutter and some heay-duty gloves so you wouldn't have to make th trip to the hardware store every time.

Cool!  What's tin foil tape?  Is it that stuff you get from the hardware store that is actually used to seal ductwork (whereas, strangely, duct tape is not)?

How did you attach the eyepin.  I realize you say it didn't quite work how you wanted it to, but explain what you did, if you would be so kind  Smiley

Tin foil tape comes from the plumbing section of the hardware store.  I think it's used to seal pipes and stuff.  It comes in a big roll, like duct tape, and needs to be cut.  Originally, i sealed all the sides of the necklace and then stuck the eyepin through the top of the tape between the panes of glass and the two images (the one on the back is from a postcard), but it didn't hold.  I pulled it out, dipped it in Goop (which i'm in love with), and slid it back in.  I had to wipe a bit of goop off the top by where the eyepin went in, but I mostly pushed it back into the hole around the eyepin (does that make sense?) to hold it in place.

Okay, I know the tape you mean.  I've never used Goop -- do you like it better than the ol' standby, E-6000?  I'm pretty devoted to the E-6000...
