These are great.  One question:  How do you scale down the microscope slides?  I have a bunch of these and several rolls of the copper tape that I bought intending to make slide necklaces and haven't, yet.  I have lots of stamps, though, and could do some of these, too!

Gorgeous, I want the first one. I'd hurt myself soldering so I don't do it.

Stamps are mini-art pieces, they deserve to be used in jewelry
thanks... and i've totally burned my finger and thumb... it really does hurt.

I wouldn't worry too much about cannabalizing a stamp collection - my Mom has been collecting stamps for decades and it turns out that most stamps aren't worth much more than their face value - some are even worth less - a tightwas gazette tip was to buy undervalued ones from a stamp dealer and use them for postage on letters - you could send them to friends who would return the cancelled stamps to you and they would end costing you even less! The thrill of a bargain is usually the big bonus for me!!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
