Ok - here is my second try at this!  I found that taping the jumpring in place worked out well. 

One interesting thing about this try is that the glass didn't break as smooth as I would have liked and I was able to build up an edge using the solder.

I also found out (on the third try) that the glue for the tape will melt and thus move on you.  As such, I am having to retape the next one.  This is a fun project!

well I just came across your tutorial today and wanted to tell you a different approach.  I use pictures that i take myself of my kids and sunsets..ect..print them out on the computer  and sometime even laminate them first.  But I  have never used the glass slides, I had no idea where
to get them when I started trying to do this..So I just used regular clear glass.  Cut it to the size I want to make my neclace, and then for the backing I cut a pepsi can up with tlin snips to fit for the back.  It works great and makes it unique!  Although I never thought of using stamps, but will have to try that next,  I use to work for a company opening mail and when I did we would keep alot of the really cool stamps, so I have a box fulll..Thought of throwing them away awhile back, but as a crafter was sure I would find some use for them..glad I kept them...

Thanks for sharing your generous 'how-to' on the most excellent postage stamp necklaces!  I know several ladies (most-very difficult to find something they like) who would love these as gifts!  Thanks so much for sharing! Grin

hi there,

does anyone here know what can i subsitute with copper tape? I couldn't get any in singapore and i reckon glue don't do well with heat.

the scrapbook store here is pathetic they don't sell the glass and those from frame makers are simply too thick and non lead soldering wire seem impossilbe too.....oh i am so desperate and in love with this project.

help! help!

I don't know about substituting for the copper tape in order to solder, but another method for getting something like this is using melted UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and dipping the edges only, and maybe your local scrapbooking store would have it.....very similar look but perhaps not so permanent.

Have you checked Scrapalatte? http://scrapalatte.net/ They ship overseas, and have EVERYTHING you could possibly need. They were mentioned by the first poster of this thread, and I ordered my first set of supplies from them.

hey mc julie, i found the copper tape and managed (with lots of struggle) to complete it with 2 pieces of thicker glass as i had no luck on slide here yet *urggg*

anyway, this is a great idea for a 16 inches necklace but not longer as it seem to hit on table and also not gd as a keychain ya...i wonder anyone here had any idea to seal the glass to avoid breaking it thru rough wearing?

i will post my pic soon !!!
